How To Make A Lemon Bundt Cake
A great thing about this Simple Buttermilk Lemon Bundt Cake is how super easy it is to make. Bundt cakes can be intimidating, but I've never had problems with this recipe. And even if this cake doesn't come out perfectly it's still incredibly scrumptious!
A helpful bundt cake tip is to make sure you have a good quality bundt cake tin, preferably silicone. And always grease it super thoroughly!
Instructions To Make This Lemon Bundt Cake:
- Preheat your oven to 180C and grease a bundt cake tin.
- In a mixing bowl, place the flour, baking powder, baking soda and whisk until well combined.
- In a separate bowl, beat the butter, sugar, and lemon zest until light and fluffy. About 5 minutes.
- Add the eggs to the butter mixture one at a time while continuously beating. Making sure to scrape down the side of the bowl every now and then.
- In a small separate bowl, combine the buttermilk, lemon juice, and vanilla essence.
- While mixing on low speed, add the flour mixture to the butter, alternating with the lemon juice mixture.
- Mix until just combined. Do not overmix the batter.
- Pour the cake batter into the prepared bundt cake tin and pop it into the oven for 45 - 50 minutes (or until a fork inserted comes out clean.)
- Allow cake to cool completely before removing from the tin and adding the lemon glaze.
HOW TO STORE LEMON BUNDT CAKE
This lemon bundt cake can be stored for 2 - 3 days covered at room temperature. It can also be stored in the refrigerator if you prefer, but I recommend letting it come to room temperature before serving it.
This bundt cake can also be frozen, but you need to freeze it before you add the lemon glaze. Wrap the cake in plastic wrap before freezing in an airtight container or bag. The cake can be frozen for up to 2 months. Before serving, thaw the cake and add the lemon glaze.
