Winter Citrus Cake, A Healthyish Brand Recipe

These mini upside-down citrus cakes are super easy to bake and packed with flavor. Our lemon cake mix and mellow yellow cake mix both work really well with this recipe. In fact, both of those cake mixes are made with organic turmeric which also has some incredible health benefits on its own. In my opinion, pairing these perfectly portioned, organic mixes with fresh citrus makes these mini desserts way more “healthy” than “ish”.  So, let’s get started,

*For this recipe I used honey and cinnamon but you can use brown sugar and butter if you prefer.

What You’ll Need – Serves 1

1 Blood Orange or Lemon

1 Pouch of Healthyish Lemon Cake Mix

1 Tablespoon melted unsalted butter

2 Tablespoon 2%milk
