Lemon Bundt Cake with Lemon Icing

I went back & forth all week long about what dessert to make for Easter dinner.  I originally was going to make a Snickerdoodle Cake, but I think I am saving that for this upcoming weekend (Jon’s 13th birthday).  So, I tossed around several ideas….Lemon Bars, Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie, Spice Cake, Vanilla Cake or Lemon Bundt Cake.  I opted for the Lemon Bundt Cake because is seems so “Springy” to me. 

This recipe really couldn’t be any easier.  I used Pamela’s Classic Vanilla Cake Mix (which, I have to share, my sister got on clearance at Kroger for $2.49!!!!  Thanks KELLY!).  There are several variations listed on the package and I chose the lemon one.  All I had to add to the mix, aside from the water, oil & eggs, was 4 tsp. of lemon zest and 1.5 tsps. of pure lemon extract.   Instead of using the recommended pan sizes (yes, that is the rule breaker in me coming out. 😉 ), I used a bundt pan.  It worked perfectly!  I baked at 325 degrees for about 35 minutes, keeping a very close eye on the cake. 

I let the cake cool for 10 minutes or so and then placed my plate that I wanted to display the cake on upside down over the top of the bundt pan and gently flipped it over.  Perfection! 


After the cake cooled, I iced it with Lemon Icing. 

Lemon Icing

1/4 cup Lemon Juice

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Mix above ingredients until smooth.  Slowly drizzle over the cooled cake. 




The cake was a hit!  Jon loves it.  Our Easter guests, Aaron’s parents , Mack & Mary, enjoyed the cake as well.  I especially liked the icing and will be making this again soon!
