Triple Lime~Yogurt Mini Bundt Cakes

When I saw this recipe on the fabulous Domestic Gothess blog, I knew I had to make it!  With yogurt and ground almonds in the batter and only 1/2 cup of flour, this was a healthier cake. The triple lime hit comes from zest in the batter, a lime syrup glaze on the warm cake and more zest to top the yogurt icing ! YUM!  I made them in individual Bundt pans but they can be made as mini loaves or as a whole cake.  Adjust the baking time accordingly.

2 eggs

2/3 c sugar( castor if you have it, granulated if not)

finely grated zest of 2 limes

1/2 c unbleached flour

1/2 c ground almonds

1/4 c butter, melted

1/4 c Greek yogurt


juice of 1 lime

1/4 c sugar

1 T water


1/4 c Greek yogurt

1 and 3/4 c icing sugar

finely grated zest of 2 limes

2 t sugar


Preheat oven to 350F.  Grease a mini Bundt pan.

Whisk the eggs and sugar until very fluffy.  Add in the zest of 2 limes.

Mix together the flour, almonds and baking powder.  Alternate adding the dry ingredients with the melted butter into the egg and sugar mixture until just incorporated.  Do not over mix.

Divide the batter among the 6 Bundt tins.  Bake on a middle rack for 25 minutes.

While the cake is baking, make the syrup by combining in a small saucepan the sugar, lime juice and water and stir, over low heat, until the sugar is dissolved.  As soon as the cakes can be removed from the tin and working on a cooling rack, prick their surface with a toothpick and brush with the lime syrup, allowing each layer to be absorbed before brushing again until all the syrup is used up.

Let cool completely while you make the icing.  Mix the icing sugar with the yogurt until smooth and thick but still pourable.  Mix the lime zest with the sugar.

Glaze each cake with some of the icing, letting it drip over the sides.  Top with the sugared lime zest.
