Oh you guys, this lemon bundt cake is SO good. I have seriously become addicted to lemon desserts. I even got Mike addicted too. I don’t know where it came from?! There’s something about the tart and sweet combination that is just so amazing. This cake is no exception. If you are looking for a light and fluffy cake, this probably isn’t the cake for you. It is sort of dense – think: pound cake – but it is so ridiculously soft, moist and packed with lemony flavor. The lemon glaze on top really brings this dessert over the top and really packs a big punch of lemony flavor. The cakes delicious on it’s own but the glaze is totally and completely necessary! The lemon sugar sprinkled on top makes it look even prettier while adding to the lemon flavor. This cake is for true lemon lovers!
The cake is so simple to put together and uses such common ingredients. I love making bundt cakes because they’re so pretty with such minimal effort! Be sure to grease your pan extreeeemely well so the cake slips right out. If a few spots get stuck on, don’t even worry about it because you can cover it with the glaze.
On top there’s lemon sugar sprinkled on. I’ve never made lemon sugar until this recipe and it’s so yummy! Leaving the lemon zest in with the sugar is totally optional, but sometimes I push the sugar through a fine mesh strainer to separate the two, depending who I am serving. It’s all about personal preference.
If you love lemon, you absolutely need to make this.. like now.
