1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon lemon zest

1-2 tablespoons milk (optional, to thin the glaze if needed)

Instructions:

 

Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a bundt pan, making sure to

coat all the nooks and crannies to prevent sticking.

soda, and salt. Set aside.

together with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes.

Add the Eggs: Beat in the eggs one at a time, ensuring each egg is fully incorporated before adding

the next. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Add the Wet Ingredients: Mix in the sour cream, fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla extract

until combined.

Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing

just until combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can lead to a dense cake.

Bake the Cake: Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan, smoothing the top with a spatula. Tap

the pan gently on the counter to remove any air bubbles. Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60

minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow the cake to

cool in the pan for about 15 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

Prepare the Lemon Glaze: In a medium bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, fresh lemon juice,

and lemon zest until smooth. If the glaze is too thick, add a tablespoon of milk at a time until it

reaches your desired consistency.

Glaze the Cake: Once the cake is completely cool, drizzle the lemon glaze over the top, allowing it to

drip down the sides. For a more controlled pour, use a spoon or a piping bag.

Serve and Enjoy: Allow the glaze to set for a few minutes before slicing and serving the cake. This

cake pairs wonderfully with a cup of tea or coffee and is perfect for dessert, a tea party, or any special

gathering.

Tips for the Best Lemon Bundt Cake:

 

Room Temperature Ingredients: Ensure that your butter, eggs, and sour cream are at room

temperature. This helps them combine more easily and results in a smoother batter.

Zesting Lemons: When zesting lemons, be careful to avoid the white pith, which is bitter. Only zest

the yellow outer layer.

Greasing the Pan: Use a non-stick baking spray that includes flour, or grease and flour the pan

thoroughly to prevent the cake from sticking.

Cooling Time: Allow the cake to cool in the pan for about 15 minutes before transferring it to a wire

rack. This helps the cake set and reduces the chance of it breaking apart.

Conclusion

 

This glazed lemon bundt cake is a delightful blend of tangy lemon and sweet glaze, making it a

perfect treat for any occasion. With its moist crumb and vibrant flavor, this cake is sure to become a

favorite. Follow these steps and tips for a successful baking experience, and enjoy the refreshing taste
