New Toy Mini Pans and Lemon Loaves

There was a reason for buying these:
but I'm not telling.  I decided to try them out, and it was like a little tea party cake, and I plan on using them more often than not.   Cute mini pans for petite cakes and slices.

I made some mini lemon cake loaves, adding fresh lemon juice to the batter and cocoa sprinkled on half of each finished loaf.  The icing was fresh lemon juice, a little lemon zest, and Confectioners Sugar.  Pucker up, it was lemony and good.  The cocoa was a nice try, it doesn't sound good, "Lemon and Cocoa," but it was.  Next time I think I will try blueberries with lemon.  Poppy seeds and lemon go well together, too.  I thought about using coconut, but I don't like it.  I was thinking Spring and made Lemon Cake right in the middle of winter.   

I'm going to make mini Pound Cakes, cherries and walnuts for me versus Marble or maybe Raisins for him.

Sounds (and looks) delicious. It's good to experiment and try new things - the Blueberry sounds really good. Sue x
