Serves: 12 servings
  • For the cakes:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream (full fat recommended)
  • For the glaze:
  • 4 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Cream butter with an electric mixture until smooth. Gradually add in the granulated sugar, beating well until mixture is light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, stirring just until incorporated after each addition. Stir in the vanilla and almond extracts.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with the sour cream, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Pour the batter into a greased and floured mini bundt pan with 8-ounce cavities, filling each cavity about ⅔ full. (The batter will yield approximately 12 mini bundt cakes). Bake for 30 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before inverting the cakes onto the rack to cool completely. While cakes cool, prepare the glaze.
  4. Combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla and 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice in a large mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer to beat until combined, adding the additional tablespoon of lemon juice, if necessary, to achieve a drizzling consistency. Drizzle glaze over cooled cakes.
This batter can also be prepared in a standard 12-cup bundt pan by adjusting the baking time to 1 hour 30 minutes. Cool the cake in the pan on a wire rack 10 minutes before turning onto the rack to cool completely.
