SUMMER LEMON BUNDT CAKE

It has been a hot minute since I baked something so I decided “why not make this week’s blog post a baking one?”. I thought a lemon cake would be perfect for summer.

This recipe went downhill quick at the end but it turned out delicious still lol. Keep on reading to find out what I did wrong. I promise you can still follow this recipe and it come out delicious lol.

summer lemon bundt cake

cake ingredients

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 and 1/4 cups granulated sugar

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup milk

1 tbs white vinegar OR use 1 cup buttermilk instead of 1 cup milk and 1 tbs of vinegar

2 tbs lemon zest

2 tbs lemon juice

2 sticks salted butter, softened

icing ingredients

1 and 1/2 cup powdered sugar

2 tbs lemon juice

1 tsp water

1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.

First things first, in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, combine the butter and sugar on low speed.

From there add in your other dry ingredients slowly. Start with your baking soda, salt, and lastly the flour.

Then crack in each egg one at a time.

Typically people use buttermilk in a recipe like this but I didn’t have any. I looked up an alternative, 1 tbs of white vinegar for every cup of buttermilk.

So, add a cup of milk and a tablespoon of white vinegar.

Next, mix in your lemon juice and zest.

So here is where I messed up. I greased the pan nice and thoroughly but didn’t sprinkle enough granulated sugar. This batter is suuuuuper moist and thick so it stuck on the tops. Adding more granulated sugar would’ve prevented the sticking.

Basically, throw this in the middle rack of the oven for about 45 minutes.

Just my luck, the first time I decide to film, it is an entire hot mess. Don’t worry, I kinda save it in the end. Cake will never go to waste.

While your cake bakes, prepare your icing. Just mix your lemon juice, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and water.

My beautiful cake came out of the oven and I had such high hopes 🙂

Then it completely stuck and fell apart but I saved it.

Glaze your cake in icing and cut to enjoy! Mine fell apart a little but still, it tastes so good. The flavor is really subtle but still says “lemon” 😋🍋

I hope you guys try this recipe and it comes out even better than mine haha.
