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!
