Mini Lemon Curd Bundt Cakes Recipe Is Sweet, Delicious + Super Easy to Make

An easy cream cheese glaze and candied lemon slices give these easy treats a bakeshop-beautiful finish

When it comes to lemon-flavored desserts, there’s no such thing as too many. Whether you’re making a lemon meringue pie or a lemon mousse cake, it’s a sweet treat that everyone will enjoy. So why not add another one to your home bakery? Our Mini Lemon Curd Bundt Cakes Recipe is the perfect little bite, plus the cream cheese glaze adds an extra burst of sweetness.

Typically, you only need egg yolks, sugar, lemon juice and zest to make a lemon curd, but we simplified this recipe and used a pre-packaged option instead. We also use a boxed lemon-cake mix and substitute the oil for Greek yogurt. Not only does it make the cakes a little healthier, but it also makes them more moist. No one wants a dry cake! Once you’re ready to bake, ensure your bundt pans are thoroughly greased and you don’t over fill the tray. Pop ’em in the oven and enjoy!
