Grandma's Mini Lemon Breads

"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.

    I got rave reviews for this recipe! I made 4 mini loaves with this recipe, I think next time I will make 5 so that the loaves are not oversized. Also I'm going to bake these at 325 degree next time instead of 350 to prevent my loaves from over browning on top. One thing to note, when making this pay attention to the quantity of pudding mixes to ensure your have enough on hand. I ended up using two small packages of lemon pudding and I had to use a small french vanilla because of not paying attention to this. :) I will definately be making this again in the future. Thank you for the very easy & tasty recipe!!
