Butter (softened): 1 cup
Granulated sugar: 1 1/2 cups
Lemon juice: 1/3 cup (plus 2 tablespoons for the glaze)
Large eggs: 5
All-purpose flour: 3 cups
Baking powder: 2 teaspoons
Salt: 1/2 teaspoon
Milk: 2/3 cup
Confectioners’ sugar: 1 cup
Vanilla extract: 1 teaspoon
Initial Preparations: Preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C). Take a 12-cup Bundt cake pan and treat it with love – grease and flour it for a non-stick experience.
The Creamy Base: Dive into mixing! In a large bowl, cream together the butter and granulated sugar until you’re greeted with a light and fluffy texture.
Lemony Infusion: Add the 1/3 cup lemon juice to the creamy base and blend well. Then, let the eggs join the party one by one, ensuring they’re well mixed after each entry.
Dry Meet Wet: In a different realm (bowl), sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Slowly, with grace, merge this dry mixture with the lemony base, alternating with milk.
Setting the Stage: Once your batter is ready, introduce it to the Bundt pan. Ensure it settles comfortably.
Baking Time: Place the pan in the oven’s embrace for 50-60 minutes. You’ll know they’ve bonded well when the cake springs back at a gentle touch and slightly moves away from the pan’s sides.
Glazing Glory: While the cake cools, prepare your glaze. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, blend the confectioners’ sugar, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, and vanilla. Stir until they form a warm, smooth relationship. Once your cake is cool, shower it with the glaze, letting it cascade down its curves.
Our Lemon Bliss Bundt Cake is a dance of flavors – the tanginess of lemon paired with the sweetness of the glaze promises a taste that lingers. Whether you’re looking to impress guests or simply indulge in some self-love, this cake is your perfect companion. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or fresh berries to elevate the experience. Enjoy!
