Easy Lemon Bundt Cake is an easy dessert you can whip up quickly for just about any occasion. Perfect for spring!
A couple of months ago, I made a Lemon Oreo Cheesecake Bundt Cake that was undeniably amazing. It was dense and perfectly moist, practically begging you to take another bite. So I thought that I would make a more basic lemon bundt cake for your everyday needs.
I first replicated the original recipe, but without the Oreo cheesecake filling: the cake was too dense and it shrank significantly when cooling. So I made some alterations, which included the addition of egg whites, and reducing the sour cream.
My final Lemon Bundt Cake is not quite as dense as the original version, but it is a little bit lighter, making it ideal for brunch or dare I say, breakfast?
You might be asking yourself what make this cake so easy? Well, it starts with a cake mix. Even though the cake mix I used already had pudding in the mix, I decided to add another packet of lemon pudding mix.
I’ve also added a few basic ingredients to alter the original box mix, including sour cream to add moisture, baking powder for rise, and lemon zest so it really packs a punch, and a touch of vanilla extract to balance it all out.
For this cake, I added a lemon infused vanilla glaze. This is very reminiscent of a cake from a bakery I worked at in high school. Their famous Lemon LuLu cake practically had wings because it flew off the shelf so fast.
I definitely found myself sneaking bites of this cake after my photo shoot. Each time my, “just one more bite” was never enough.
This cake would pair perfectly with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or even some whipped cream and fresh berries.
