Baking Pan for Lemon Mini Cakes

You can adapt this recipe to a different pan and adjust the baking time as needed.  If the cake pan you use has deeper wells, you’ll need to extend the baking time.

  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk the almond flour, sugar substitute, baking powder, and salt until well combined.

  4. Lightly grease the wells of your mini cake pan.
  5. Evenly distribute the batter into the wells, filling each well about ¾ full. If using a different type of pan, make sure to leave room for the cakes to rise.
  6. Bake in the oven for 8 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. If using a different type of pan, adjust the baking time for your pan.
  7. Let the lemon mini cakes cool before adding your desired toppings, such as confectioners erythritol, or fresh fruit.
