Many people are afraid of tackling a bundt bake...but I'm on the but-they're-too-pretty-to-not-give-it-a-go team!!
I love this particular bundt because it is assembled in a single bowl (which of course means less cleaning up), needs only a whisk to mix the batter and it's one of those cakes which tastes even better the next day, if only it lasts that long!
With citrus season in full swing here at the moment, it's absolute perfection if you can get your hands on some Meyer lemons, otherwise still divine with other tangier varieties of lemon. Then if you have some lovely oranges you'd like to incorporate into a bake, you can definitely use those too! Just use the same quantities of zest and juice - too easy!
Next, I'd like to talk about that glaze - zingy, lemony and a beautiful contrast to the brown cake, this glaze is easy as to put together and, when topped with a few fresh lemon thyme leaves, is so pretty to look at. This is the reason why I love bundts! The glaze sticking onto the curves of the bundt design is enough of a decoration, you don't need anything more complicated that that.
Oh, and remember, if you like your glaze, feel free to double the quantities and double glaze the cake, waiting a few minutes in between to allow the first layer to set before going in for the double!
Perfect for morning or afternoon tea, not to mention gorgeous on a cake stand when hosting a brunch, I really hope you try this recipe. Just take care to prepare your bundt tin properly and the cake should simply pop out when you flip it over, don't be afraid to give it a go.
I just adore seeing my recipes come to life in your kitchens so please don't forget to tag me on your socials if you give it a go!
Take care, stay safe,
