Notes

Why did my cake stick in the pan?
Make sure to grease and flour your pan so the cake releases from it easily. I spray my pan with a vegetable oil cooking spray then add flour to the bottom of the pan and shake it around it the pan is completely coated with flour.
Can I add more lemon flavor?
Sure! I recommend adding a little lemon zest to the cake or frosting to really pump up the lemon flavor.
How long does it take for a Bundt Cake to cool?
After you flip it out of the pan (make sure it rests for 20 minutes before you flip it!) it will take about a hour to completely cool. Make sure you wait until it cools to frost it or your frosting will melt.
How do I frost the bundt cake?
You can drizzle the frosting over the cake like we did or you can put it in a piping bag and pipe it. Use a large round tip. Start at the bottom of the cake and pipe lines up the cake into the hole center, repeat until the cake is done. Another option is to frost it like a regular cake with an offset spatula!
Can I use a different pan?
Yes! I would recommend using two loaf pans for the amount of batter in this recipe.
How do I store a bundt cake?
You will want to store this in an airtight container at room temperature. We recommend a Cake Server. Another option is to cover it tightly with Saran Wrap.
