Lemon and Coconut Mini Cakes

It’s always nice to start Monday with a little treat.  It doesn’t have to be anything complicated, just quick and easy one. 
 Monday is the busiest day of a week in our house.  There are always errands to be run or things to be cared of. And because my husband J. works hard so I could stay at home and take care of my little bundle of joy, all household duties are on my shoulders.  But since I really enjoy organizing and sorting out, I am happy to do that.
And what can make our day smoother and more pleasant? A treat, of course! These small cakes are light yet rich sure will satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth.
These little indulgences are another reason to look forward to Mondays : )
