Tim’s Favorite Bundt Cake

Sour Cream Lemon Cake

Tim isn’t much of a cake eater, but he seems to love bundt cakes.

I think it’s the lack of frosting that he enjoys.

That’s kinda funny considering he’s a teenager.

I thought the frosting was the best part at that age.

This citrusy delight is his favorite!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • grated zest of 1 large lemon
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Lemon Glaze:
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar

Preparation Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 325°. Generously butter and flour a 10-inch bundt pan.
  • Into a bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl with hand-held electric mixer, cream 1 cup butter and granulated sugar; beat at high speed until mixture is very light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping down side of bowl frequently. Blend in lemon zest. Add flour mixture to the creamed mixture alternately with sour cream, adding each in 3 additions. Scrape sides of bowl frequently. Pour batter into prepared cake pan; bake in the preheated oven for 55 to 65 minutes, or until a cake tester or wooden pick inserted near the center of cake comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine lemon glaze ingredients in a bowl, blending until smooth. Carefully turn cake out onto a platter; drizzle evenly with glaze.
  • Serves 12 or more, depending on size of servings.
