Easter is upon us and (to me at least) that means a big family brunch with lots of scrumptious treats -- especially for the kids! Pound Cake was always a favorite of mine as a child and I've been thinking of ways to put a new twist on it for Easter. When I was recently gifted Kitchen Aid Mini Doughnut pans at a kids cooking event, I couldn't wait to get home and put them to good use for my pound cake experiment.
Baked (not fried!) these Lemon Pound Cake Mini Doughnuts are moist, delicate and lightly sweet. They may be small in size, but each one offers a burst of tart lemon flavor and is topped with a thin coat of icing (the icing part is totally up to you as these doughnuts are fall-off-the-chair good on their own).
No matter what you decide to make this Easter, I bet if you make these little gems they'll be the first to go!
