For the mini cakes:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour;
  • 1 cup sugar;
  • ½ tsp salt;
  • ½ tsp baking soda;
  • ½ cup butter;
  • ½ cup water;
  • ¼ cup sour cream;
  • 1 egg;
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest;
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice.

For the glaze:

  • 1 ½ cup powdered sugar;
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice;
  • 2 tbsp milk;
  • 1 tsp lemon zest;
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted.


  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • In a bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda.
  • In a small saucepan, melt butter. Add water, stir and bring this buttery mixture to a boil.
  • Add this hot buttery mixture to dry ingredients. Using an electric mixer, mix until just combined.
  • Add sour cream, egg, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Beat until smooth.
  • Grease mini muffin tin with cooking spray. Add batter to the prepared muffin tins. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let them cool for 5 minutes in the mini muffin pan. Then, transfer them to the cooling rack. Let them cool to room temperature.
  • While they are cooling, prepare the glaze. Combine powdered sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, milk, and melted butter. Heat for 10-15 seconds in the microwave.
  • Dip each mini lemon drop cake into the glaze (bottom side down). Then, return to the rack. Serve when glaze hardens.
