Lemon bundt cake  bakedThis recipe has been selected by the lovely and talented Grace from Life can be Simple. I’m so glad she picked this recipe as I love lemons as you will recall from my Rosemary-Lemon Polenta Cake. As the host of the bake is the only one who is allowed to state the recipe I kindly ask you to visit Grace’s blog for the recipe.

I was at a friend’s house when I spontaneously decided to bake this cake as my girlfriend had just installed a new oven and she wanted to test it out. As she is not a baker I volunteered straight away to do the baking, so we rummaged through her pantry to see if she had the ingredients.

We found everything except for nutmeg and baking soda. As baking soda is required when buttermilk is called for I decided not to make my own buttermilk (milk and lemon juice), instead I used plain flour, baking powder (2 teaspoons) and plain milk.

So my version of this cake is Lemon-Glazed Bundt Cake without buttermilk. I made the full recipe using a 10 inch bundt tin.

As you can see the cake baked beautifully in her new oven. It was deliciously moist and the cashew nuts gave it a lovely crunch. I really loved the lemon syrup which was drizzled over once the cake was turned out. It was quite lemony so if you are not a big fan of lemons then I suggest you omit the syrup or only pour a little.

Like the other members of this bake I found that the flavour of the cake intensified the next day. This is a very simple yet delicious cake to bake a day in advance. A definite keeper in my household.
