Lemon Bundt Cake

It’s Bundt Bakers time again and our theme this month is bundt cakes with lemon. I picked a really easy one after the one I planned to share failed miserably. It stuck to the pan and refused to come out. Then I decided I didn’t like the texture at all so it all went in the trash. This cake is one I make often. It is great for picnics and lunches because it travels well. The cake itself is only 6 ingredients and starts with a mix. The glaze is just confectionery sugar and water. Easy Peasy!

I love the texture of this cake. It just gets moister as it sits covered also.

    This cake looks soo good! I’m sorry to hear that your first cake didn’t work out but the one you went with looks like a real winner. The crumb look so moist, I bet the cream cheese helps keep it moist and adds a bit of extra tanginess. Yum!

    Wow Mary Ellen, that is one stunning looking cake! I’m sorry to hear that your first one stuck to the pan, but glad for this one now because I am definitely trying this recipe. Sometimes easy is the way to go :). I don’t think I’ve tried adding cream cheese to any of my cakes, so that’s on my list as well!
