I suggest you pull out the eggs and butter and let them sit on your counter because by the time you are done reading this post (yes, I am assuming you actually read my posts ;)) you will need your ingredients at room temperature to make this cake. Because you will want to make this cake. I am telling you right now. It is that good!
And then make sure you remember to make it for Easter. With it’s fresh lemony flavor and gorgeous appearance it is sure to be a star on your holiday table.
Case in point.
Nothing like gorgeous sunny and bright lemons to cheer you up on these drury and long last Winter days. And it works because birds were chirping and the sun came out when I was taking these photos. Totally got me in the mood for Spring. And even more anxious for it.
After these Lemon Burst Cookies, I knew I wasn’t done with lemon desserts. They make you happy just by looking at them and apparently you guys agree with me, judging on the comments and popularity on Pinterest. (btw, thank you so much for all the pins!!!)
I received this bundt pan for Christmas and was really looking forward to using it. I just needed a good occasion and a great recipe. And here it is.
I love the design. A Simple yet striking cake. Add the glaze and you have a perfect dessert for a celebration or holidays.
As Winter is starting to exit our Midwest prairies, I seem to transition from peppermint to lemon tea. I have to say, it really became my afternoon routine. I make a steaming mug of it and enjoy it while I bake or watch reruns of “Brother’s and Sisters” on Netflix. ( So happy they have it, btw!!!)
This cake is based on a simple buttermilk cake batter. I added a zest from the whole lemon (it’s a big cake after all) and topped it with a lemon glaze. Citrus flavor all the way! While the glaze is actually more tarty than sweet (some glazes taste too sweet to me), the cake is not overwhelming in flavor. In my opinion, the two complement each other really well. The crumb is light, the outside slightly crunchy.
