Mini Lemon Yogurt Bundt Cake with Lemon Glaze: Small in size but big in flavor!

Well, I still don't want to do anything much, but I don't want to sit still too, haha. And last month, I just got a lot of new books and one of them is .............but I think that they might add something interesting in their new book ^ ^.

Anyway, we will talk about the book later, because when I browsed through the book I saw this recipe, I thought I really want to try it. But after reading the recipe, I have to make a little change (or you can call a lot haha) because I don't have buttermilk, so I use the yogurt instead, I don't like too sweet cake so I reduce the sugar amount and I change the type of the flour (the original recipe calls for bread flour, but I want a soft cake so, I use all purpose flour).

I made it in small size, but after tasting it, I think there should be something more to make the cake better, because the cake is bit dry (in my opinion).
So, at last I add the lemon glaze and Voilà, finally this is the cake that I want ^ ^.
I think a small but full of flavor little cake, can be the best treat to accompany the afternoon tea, oh! what a lovely day!
