Strawberry Mini Bundt Cakes
These little cakes are the perfect size for an afternoon Tea Time or for a light summer dessert. Heck, they would be a great dessert for any time of the year. Sweet and full of strawberry flavor, the cakes could stand on their own. Add the fresh, chopped strawberries and your little cake has risen to a new level of delicious!
I recently saw this recipe in a magazine called Tea Time. I love the magazine for a couple of reasons. One reasons is all of the great recipes that are shared. The other reason is the history and tradition about Tea Time that is shared. I can’t wait until this magazine finds it’s way to my mail box. I will sit for hours with it and plan my next Tea Time Tuesday with my daughter.
When I saw this strawberry mini bundt cake recipe, I knew I would be making it soon. As a matter of fact, it was our dessert last Sunday. This moist little cake was the perfect size and the perfect way to end a meal. I sent one home with my daughter and
hid froze a couple of them for later.
If you and your family love strawberry, I think you and your family will really enjoy these little cakes. I know they will be on my menu again!
