Lemon Cakes

I am a chocoholic and I seldom stray from making anything without chocolate, but every now and again I surprise myself, and my family, by making something out of character.  This time I went way out of my comfort zone and made lemon cakes.  We were invited to a large party and I was asked to bring a dessert that would be in individual portions but not a cookie.  What??  That is not an easy request or task..good thing I am friends with the hostess or I might have aborted the mission and brought cookies!  So after much looking around at recipes, I made lemon cakes in mini loaf pans.  I followed the recipe exactly but then separated the batter into the mini loaf pans.  The only thing I was worried about was how long to cook them.  I watched them very carefully after 20 minutes of cooking and tested them with a cake stick along the way.  I hate to say that I didn’t make a note of the actual cooking time (my Bad!!).  The pictures do not show how small they are, but if you think of the size of the lemon and compare that to the loaf you get the idea. I wrapped them in wax paper for transport and then sliced them in bite size pieces at the party.  I think they were a hit because there were no leftovers…
