- Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 6-cake mini Bundt pans.

are melted. Cool slightly.
- Combine flour, baking powder and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, sugar and vanilla
extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well
after each addition. Beat in lemon peel and melted morsels. Gradually beat in flour
mixture alternately with buttermilk. Pour into prepared pans.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in cakes comes out clean.
Cool in pan on wire racks for 10 minutes. Combine powdered sugar and lemon juice
in small bowl. Make holes in cakes with wooden pick; pour half of lemon glaze over
cakes. Let stand for 5 minutes. Invert onto serving platter. Make holes in top
of cakes; pour remaining glaze over cakes.
