Personally speaking, there's something inherently appealing about miniature versions of pastries and sweet-tooth-appeasing-bouts-of-magic. Perhaps, this inherent appeal stems from the association that the smaller the pastry the lesser the guilt when you enjoy the whole serving, by yourself.
Well, with that in mind... allow me to introduce la-miniature lemon and coconut bundt cake - an absolute winner, if I do say so myself. Truth be told, the flavour inspiration comes from the onset of Eid (which, much like any other religious holiday, has muslims around the world finding inspiration in the kitchen!).
The added tip to this recipe is the use of almond flour, which allows for a beautifully light, soft and moist texture. The lemon and coconut flavour burst works perfectly overall, and is subtly complimented with a simple icing glaze drizzled on top. You'll be pleasantly surprised to to know that it took me about 40 minutes in total, from start to finish.
So if you're looking for inspiration to bake something, whether it be for Eid, or just to appease a craving, give this flop-proof recipe a try!
