Lemony Sour Cream Cakelets {Recipe}

Inspired by the success of my one bowl,1st Prize Chocolate Cake, I threw everything in, crossed my fingers and hoped for the best.

These cakelets are good in every way a lemon cake ought to be: Tangy and moist with a zingy lemon icingThey’re soooooooooo easy to make.They get better with time – make them a day ahead and continue to enjoy any leftovers the day after.

They'd be perfect for a Mother's Day afternoon tea, dressed up with some sugar flowers.
