Bundt Pound Cake

This lemon cake recipe is made using a 10 cup bundt pan. When baking with bundt pans it’s important to grease and flour them well, even though they are non-stick!

It’s also important to allow this lemon cake to completely cool before inverting it onto a plate. Now, I must admit, I am incredibly guilty of this and at least 50 percent of the time don’t follow this important step.

The end result is a bundt cake that has stuck to the inside of the pan, most likely towards the top of the pan.

With that being said, I do recommend waiting the cooling period out which takes at least an hour.

Whether you have patience or are hasty, make sure the cake is cool before adding the lemon glaze. The glaze with sink down into the cake if it is warm!
