- 1 package yellow cake mix (around 18.5 oz)
- 1 package instant lemon pudding mix (around 3.5 oz)
- 4 large eggs
- 3/4 cup vegetable oil
For the Luminous Glaze:
- 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Zest from 1 lemon
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 3 tablespoons water
Steps to Citrus Bliss:
- Preheat your oven to the recommended temperature for muffins from the cake mix packaging (or 350°F as a general guideline).
- In a spacious bowl, blend the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, and oil until you have a silky, lump-free batter.
- Ready your muffin tin, either greased or lined with paper cases.
- Distribute the batter into each mold, ensuring each is about two-thirds filled.
- Entrust the baking to the oven, taking cues from the cake mix instructions for muffins. Typically, around 10-12 minutes or until a testing toothpick emerges cleanly.
- As the lemon blossoms work their magic, craft your glaze. Blend the confectioners’ sugar, zesty lemon juice, fragrant zest, oil, and water until it achieves a fluid consistency.
- Once the blossoms have baked to perfection, allow them a few moments to cool in their molds.
- Dip the still-warm tops into the glaze for a generous coating, or artfully drizzle it atop.
- Allow the glistening glaze to settle before you serve. Revel in the sweet embrace of the Lemon Blossoms, perfect for brunches, morning treats, or a mid-day citrus escapade. Their lively zest promises to stir your senses and sprinkle some sunshine onto your plate. So, beckon your baking spirit and whip up these Lemon Blossoms – your loved ones will be in for a zesty treat!
