Candied Meyer Lemon Almond Bundtlettes #BundtBakers

These candied meyer lemon almond bundtlettes have the most wonderful lemon and almond flavor with a rich tender crumb. They bake up with a lovely golden exterior that I brush with lemon syrup for even more moisture and lemony flavor.

This month my Bundt Baker friends are sharing cakes they’ve fancied up with decorations. I do believe that more is more when it comes to sprinkles but this time I decided to go a more natural route when I settled on baking a lemon almond cake.

Months ago my mom sent me a link to a recipe on David Leibovitz’s site with a request for me to please bake it for her. Of course I said yes and then completely forgot when I got back to Houston. It was well past time to pony up!

Candied Meyer Lemon Almond Bundtlettes

In order to un-complicate this recipe, I have posted the instructions for the candied Meyer lemon slices here: https://www.foodlustpeoplelove.com/2020/05/candied-lemon-slices.html
They are super easy to make and turn out so pretty, perfect for decorating these little bundtlettes.

Ingredients
5 1/2 tablespoons (50g) all-purpose flour, plus more for the pan
7 ounces (200g) unsalted butter, cubed, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups (125g) almond flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup (200g) sugar
zest of 1 large lemon
3 large eggs, at room temperature
juice of 1 large lemon (about 2 tablespoons), divided

To decorate:
candied lemon slices

Optional to brush on:
lemon syrup

Method 
Preheat the oven to 350ºF or 180ºC) and prepare your bundtlette pan by buttering it liberally then coating it with flour. Mine is called 65th anniversary Bundtlette and has a capacity of 5 cups.

In a small bowl, whisk together the almond flour, all-purpose flour, and salt.



In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the sugar, and lemon zest to release the oils from the zest.

Add in the butter and beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes on medium-high speed.



On low speed, beat in the eggs one at a time, then the juice from half a lemon, stopping the mixer to scrape down the sides of the mixer bowl after the addition of each egg.



Stir in the flour mixture until completely incorporated, then scrape the batter into the prepared cake pan. Smooth the top.



Bake the bundtlettes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean, about 25-30 minutes.



Remove from the oven and let cool 5 minutes before loosening the edges and middle with a toothpick and turning them out onto a wire rack to cool.



Brush with lemon syrup from the candied Meyer lemon slices.
