I do love making bundt cakes. I’ve made mini bundt cakes and big bundt cakes. I just think they make a perfect potluck dessert – they are easy to make, they hold over well and you can pretty much make them any flavor you want. I had to make one for the hubby so I read through my cookbooks and decided to play with a lemon recipe by adding some frozen strawberries. It made a strawberry lemon bundt cake that tasted of summer as we celebrated in the waning days of warmth and sunshine.

  • Pour in the lemon juice and mix until combined. The mixture will look quite curdled at this point. Don’t worry.
  • With the mixer on low add the flour in thirds and the sour cream in halves, beginning and ending with the flour.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer and scrape down the sides as needed to make sure the batter is thoroughly combined.

  • Add the batter to the prepared bundt pan. Drop the pan a couple of times on the counter to make sure it is settled in the pan. Smooth the top with an offset spatula.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 55 – 60 minutes until a tester comes out clean.

You can see the crack in this photo where I had to piece it back together. Baking is never 100%

Make the Glaze:

  • Mix the lemon juice and confectioner’s sugar together until it makes a pourable glaze.
  • Place a piece of wax paper or foil underneath the wire rack to catch the glaze as it falls off of the cake.

  • Pour over the cake as you like.
  • Retrieve any that has fallen off and add it back on to the cake until you are satisfied with the coverage.
  • If desired add some sugar sprinkles.

How Was the Strawberry Lemonade Bundt Cake?

I have been told it was delicious. As per usual with my baking efforts I did not have any. I did see it safely off to the party though….

…safety first, right? No one wants the dessert flying around willy nilly in case of a hard stop!

From all reports anyone who had a piece said it was very good. I will neither confirm nor deny that the batter was delicious because we are of course, not supposed to eat the batter. This cake did give me some problems with unmolding and I don’t know why as I usually have no issues at all. That is why I mention in the notes to choose a simple bundt pan for this recipe.

I just pieced it back together and added the glaze and some fancy sprinkles and no one knew. Taste is what counts, right?
