Today’s Tiffany Blue Mini Bundt Cake Recipe is the loveliest way to celebrate a special occasion! Last week was my birthday and you know how much I adore little cakes with Tiffany Blue Frosting. So, in celebration of the passing of another year, lets all enjoy a Tiffany Blue Mini Lemon Bundt Cake together! I think the best part of the “mini” version of cakes or desserts is to enjoy the sweet petites in one sitting and all by oneself! I love this cake recipe because it has a subtle hint of lemon but not too much to overwhelm it at all…it’s quite perfect actually!
Why I love Tiffany Blue Mini Bundt Cake Recipe
I’ve always loved baking and typically find the whole process as a form of therapy for me. Whenever I hear the cliche, “go to your happy place”, I imagine myself snuggled in the center of a warm bundt cake!
After all, being warm and cozy and all the aromas of cake in the air would be my description of heaven! 🙂

Ingredients in our Tiffany Blue Mini Bundt Cake Recipe
Butter- I can’t emphasis enough the importance of bringing your butter and eggs to room temperature. It’s the foundation of building a creamy, smooth dough. If I have enough time before baking, I will set butter out on the counter to reach room temperature. If I’m running tight on time then I will place my butter in the microwave for 5-10 seconds but BE CAREFUL not to melt it… at all! It’s better for the butter to be a little stiff, than even a tiny bit melted. The friction of the beaters as it mixes will warm it the rest of the way; just cream/mix it a little longer, if needed, to get that creamy-smooth and fluffy consistency we are looking for.
Eggs- I place my eggs in a small bowl of very warm water while I’m gathering all the other ingredients and prepping to bake. Then, when I’m ready to add them into the batter, they have reached the perfect temperature! Add your eggs one at a time and cream for 2 minutes, then scape the bowl down using a rubber spatula, and add the next egg. This is the best way to be sure the eggs are incorporated evenly into the batter. Beating each egg individually is essential because eggs act as a leavener which brings the loft (height) into your baked goods.
Sugar- We are using white (granulated) sugar. White sugar dissolves fast causing the dough to soften and spread.
Cake Flour- Cake flour is a flour that is very finely milled from soft winter wheat. It has a lower protein content than all-purpose flour, and it is finer, lighter, and softer. It’s also bleached, so the color is paler and the grain is less dense. Because of the lower protein content, cake flour produces less gluten and has a protein content around 7-8 percent. It makes a difference in cake and I recommend it 100%. With that being said, will your cake be THAT much different if you use all-purpose flour? Yes, and yes, it will still turn out okay with all purpose flour, just not AS good as if cake flour is used.
Leaveners- We are using baking powder (as mentioned above eggs and incorporating air are also leaveners) in our Tiffany Blue Mini Bundt Cake Recipe. When a recipe contains baking powder and baking soda, the baking powder does most of the leavening. It is preferred to use both because too much baking powder causes the batter to be bitter tasting and produces a tough crumb. Both baking powder and baking soda are chemical leavening agents that cause batters to rise when baked. The leavener enlarges the bubbles which are already present in the batter produced through creaming of ingredients.
Helpful baking tips for higher elevations
- If you live 3,000 feet above sea level or more it is considered high elevation and may take longer to cook/bake.
- Adjustments are needed for 5000+ feet and above:
- Reduce baking powder: for each teaspoon, decrease 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon.
- Reduce sugar: for each cup, decrease 2 tablespoons.
- Increase liquid: for each cup, add 2 to 4 tablespoons.
- Increase oven temperature by 25 degrees F.
- Check if it is done a little early.
- This takes some trial and error to get it right for you.
