Lemon Bundt Cake More Recipes Like This


Ingredients: Metric Units
1/2 lb. (16 Tbsp., 2 sticks) butter (at room temperature)
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. sour cream
3 eggs
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. cake flour
1 lemon

Glaze:
2 c. confectioner's sugar
4 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 lemon
Directions:
This lemony, moist cake was a hit at our Fourth of July picnic.

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a bundt pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in sour cream.

Add eggs one at a time, beating well after the addition of each egg.

Take your cake lemon and grate the zest using a lemon zester or fine cheese grater. (Zest is the cooking word for lemon rind or peel. Don't get too much of the white part; it can be fairly bitter.) Beat the grated zest into the batter.

Cut the lemon in half. Squeeze the juice of one half of the lemon into a bowl. Remove any seeds. (You'll probably have about 2 Tbsp. of lemon juice.)

Pour batter into pan.

Bake at 350F for 40-45 min., until cake is set and top is a light golden brown. Cake will pull away slightly from the sides of the pan.

Make the Glaze
While cake is baking, make the glaze.

Place confectioner's sugar in a small bowl. Add melted butter. Grate in lemon zest from one lemon.

Cut lemon in half, and juice the lemon. Add all the lemon juice into the butter-sugar mixture.

Cool cake 30 min. Use a dull knife to loosen sides. Turn the cake out onto a serving plate.

Using a knife, gently and evenly spread glaze over the top of the cake, letting it drip down the sides.

Cool completely before serving.
