Grandma's Mini Lemon Breads

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by ChrissyVas

This was one of those recipe's that my grandma said no one would ever have and she refused to give it out. I feel that no recipe should be kept secret! But after she moved I found her recipe for this sitting in the pantry under our flour container. (not sure if she did it on purpose or by mistake) She used to make these as a "stocking stuffer" and passed them out to EVERYONE! This was one of the FEW things she knew how to make well. I think this would be good to cut into slices and serve with other goodies at parties for the holidays.

I have made this for years. I found the recipe on a Duncan Hines cake mix box. They called it a pound cake. It did not have the poppy seed in it, and said to bake in a tube pan. We would glaze it with just a simple glaze made from icing/powdered sugar & lemon juice poured over it on the serving plate. Try this using a chocolate cake mix & instant chocolate fudge pudding. It makes a great moist chocolate pound cake.
