This is such fun and rewarding treat to put together. The mix of fresh lemons in the cake combined with fresh fruit not only makes fancy looking dessert but tastes amazing too. Perfect for a spring or summer time!
I love muffin or anything mini size. If I make a loaf of anything, I guarantee that it will not last long. People have a tendency to make their own portions and muffins are great for choosing your portion size for you. Perfect for kiddos cough… or husbands…who don’t know what a portion size is! 😉
As always, my kiddos were my helpers again and it was our first time making our own lemon zest. I honestly never knew it was so easy and it smelled awesome. But, even better was how awesome it made the muffins taste. I did not expect such a powerful lemon taste to come from grating the skin of a lemon. I have always just used lemon juice for all lemon based recipes. I have a new love now!
We served these as my son’s birthday cake this year and it was a hit with all the kids. They were seriously so good!
