Craving a burst of citrusy sunshine? This lemon bundt cake recipe is your answer! Light, moist, and bursting with lemon flavor, it's the perfect treat for any occasion.
Dry Ingredients: Flour, baking powder, salt Wet Ingredients: Butter, sugar, eggs, lemon zest, lemon juice, sour cream Baking Essentials: Bundt pan, mixing bowls, whisk, spatula
Begin by creaming the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. This incorporates air, making the cake light and tender.
Zest the lemons, releasing their vibrant oils for an intense citrus punch. Remember, don't zest the white pith, as it can be bitter.
Gradually add the eggs, lemon juice, and zest, mixing until just combined. Don't overmix!
Gently fold in the dry ingredients until just combined. A few lumps are okay. Overmixing can lead to a tough cake.
Pour the batter into your prepared bundt pan and bake according to the recipe (usually around 50-60 minutes).
For an extra citrusy kick, whip up a simple lemon glaze with powdered sugar and lemon juice. Drizzle it over the cooled cake for a beautiful and delicious finishing touch.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy a slice of your homemade lemon bundt cake! It's the perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea, coffee, or as a delightful dessert.
For a streusel topping, mix brown sugar, flour, and cold butter with your fingers until crumbly. Sprinkle it over the batter before baking for a delightful crunchy topping.
