Recipe Title
Grandmama's Glazed Lemon Cakes
Recipe Theme
March: Lemons
South Alabama EC

1 box yellow cake mix
2 oranges & 2 lemons
1 1/2 box confectioner sugar
Note: You’ll need miniature muffin tins and wire drying racks for this recipe

Make the icing first!
Lightly grate rinds from oranges and lemons into a bowl. (Note: Be very careful not to grate deep into the white part of the rind, as this can turn your icing bitter)
Squeeze juice from lemons and oranges and mix with grated zest
Beat in confectioners sugar until smooth

Preheat oven to 350 F
Make cake mix according to box directions
Spray miniature muffin tins with cooking spray
Fill tins halfway full with batter – NOT all the way to the top
Bake for 12 minutes or until done
Once cakes come out of the oven, dunk each cake while still warm into the icing, making sure you fully coat each one. Place cakes on a wire rack and allow to fully dry.
Tell us about your recipe
I am a Southern lifestyle blogger from Highland Home, Alabama. I have written an article (attached below) about these fabulous little lemon cakes made my by great grandmother in law that has been a family favorite for years. We loved them so much, we served them on the groom's table at our wedding in 2012! This recipe has had over 5,000 pins on Pinterest and is always requested at every family gathering! Every bite takes us right back to sitting with Grandmama and listening to her gentle voice tell us stories about growing up right here in Crenshaw County. They're absolutely delicious, and a real treat that I know Grandmama would love to share with the world!
