Full of lemon flavour, moist and fluffy bundt cake topped with some lemon glaze.

First of all, let me explain what actually bundt cake is ? It is any flavoured cake baked in bundt pan. There are many sizes, shapes and designs of it. Starting from simple ones, like the one i used for this recipe, to the ones more spectacular. For me, they all look beautiful and stunning. They are easy to prepare, but the challenge is to prepare the pan correctly! If you don’t do it well, the cake will get stick to the pan, and there is noting you can do to save if from tearing.

How to prepare bundt pan

Using your hands, grease the pan with butter. Make sure that all nooks, crannies and center tube is well covered with absolutely no gaps. You can also use melted butter and pastry brush but it is not necessary. Sprinkle with about 1 tbsp of flour. Shake the pan so that the flour covers the entire inside. Shake out the excess flour. If you are making a chocolate bundt cake, you can sprinkle the pan with cocoa powder instead of flour.

How to remove cake from bundt pan

When the cake is baked, take it out of the oven and let cool for about 20 minutes. Using your hands, gently pull the sides away from the pan. Place cooling platter on the top and quickly turn it around. Let it cool for another 10 minutes. After this, gently remove the bundt pan. It should come out cleanly.
