Mini Citrus Bundt Cake with Lemon Curd and Raspberry Sauce is a perfect small dessert with lots of big flavor.
This Mini Citrus Bundt Cake is a moist and tender bundt cake, that was baked in a 6-inch mini bundt cake pan. It has a citrus vanilla flavor obtained from using an extract called Fiori Di Sicilia, and is served with a homemade lemon curd and raspberry sauce.
I purchased this mini bundt cake pan a few years ago, and have used it so many times. The pan is perfect anytime you may need a smaller amount of dessert. We are empty nesters, so I love that we can have a dessert without a lot of leftovers. We still have enough to share with a few other people, using this pan. It also makes such a pretty dessert.
The citrus vanilla flavor in this cake comes from using Fiori Di Sicilia.
I purchased mine from the KING ARTHUR website. Fiori di Sicilia is an extract that combines vanilla, citrus and flower essences. The dominant flavors in Fiori di Sicilia are vanilla and orange, so a combination of those two make a fine substitute. I have also made this cake using a combination of vanilla and lemon extracts, when I did not have this.
Prepare the cake batter. Spread evenly in cake pan that has been sprayed with no stick cooking spray. Tap cake pan on counter two or three times to remove any air bubbles.
Bake just until cake tester comes out clean…do not overbake.
Remove cake from oven and transfer to a wire cooling rack. Cool for 10 minutes. Invert cake onto a wire rack, and carefully remove from the pan. Allow to cool completely.
Prepare the homemade lemon curd. I used a recipe from Allrecipes. HERE is the link to it. I will also include the recipe in printable recipe card at end of this post. Prepare the raspberry sauce also. For variations, you may also use any kind of berries, such as strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, or a mixture to make a sauce.
This Mini Citrus Bundt Cake is good enough to eat plain with just a dusting of confectioner sugar, serve with some fresh fruit, or a drizzle of confectioner sugar glaze. Any occasion will be a special one if you serve it with the lemon curd and raspberry sauce.
I would serve this if I were having a tea party with my daughters and granddaughters. I also got out my grandmother’s Fostoria that she left me after she passed away. I love using it and thinking of her.
