Keto Tea Party: Blueberry Lemon Cake Squares


FRESH TAKE ON TEA TIME TREATS

A Tea Party just isn’t a tea party without cakes and this week is all about Tiny Tea Time Treats!

These bite-sized Blueberry Lemon Squares are my take on a traditional tea cake. They can be served warm with a slice of butter on top or prepared early. I like to plan ahead for parties, so I will make these the day before and store them in the fridge. If you want to get really fancy you can divide the batter into a mini bundt cake tin for a decorative finish!

However and whenever you prepare them, these fruity and zesty cakes are the perfect addition to you Keto Tea Party!
