Lemon and Blueberry Mini-cakes with Lemon Honey Glaze



I made this recipe a few weeks back and had to post it before it got lost in the hundreds of recipe files in the depth of  my hard-drive. This recipe was inspired by Mimi’s Raspberry and Lemon Muffins and scaled back to yield two mini-cakes. I love freshly baked treats and hate things going to waste so I like to experiment with dessert recipes for one or two.

I am super impatient and there is no way I was going to wait for these mini-cakes to cool so that I could ice them so instead, I made a sticky glaze to pour over them. Delicious!
