Mini Lemon Cakes

The reason for me to cook or bake is quite simple. Most of the time it comes from "I want".

Want to eat, want to try the recipes, want to use the (new) pan, or just want to take the photo.

And this time the reason is I want to use this lemon cake pan, that I bought almost 2 years ago. 

And I don't know why I bought only 1. Well, every time that I saw it I always want to have 2 of it (to get 12 lemon cakes) and I think about buy 1 more. But I can't buy it before I try it first.

So, you can see that this recipe is small. It gives you only 6 mini cakes. 

I think that this recipe is very close to madeleine both in method and ingredient. The difference is 1. adding lemon to the batter 2. no need to rest the batter overnight and 3. it covered with icing.

You may think that the cake will be too sweet from the icing, but for me, I think it makes the cake more delicious, as the icing is not only sweet but it comes with tanginess and lovely fragrance from the lemon too.
