What is a Lemon Bundt Cake?

Bundt cakes are any type of cake cooked in a Bundt pan. In fact, they come in all different shapes, sizes, and designs. Since their middles are hollow, more of the batter will touch the sides and result in a desirably crusty edge that not only tastes delicious but can easily support the weight and consistency of frosting. This makes it a perfect base for complicated, decoration-heavy recipes.

We have decided to use Lemon as the main flavour, but you can choose any flavour you desire and combine them!

When using a bundt pan, grease and flour it generously, getting all the nooks and crannies of the pan. And don’t forget to grease the tube. If you generally have difficulty removing a bundt cake from its pan, make sure you cool it for 10 minutes before turning it out onto the rack. Another trick is to set the cake on a wet kitchen towel for the cooling time period. If the cake is sticking, place it back in the warm oven for about 5 to 10 minutes.

In addition, you can also try baking this cake using our amazing range of Natural Flavoured Icing Sugars!
