This simple Glazed Lemon Bundt Cake is an easy dessert to make for a party. A light lemon cake is topped with a tangy lemon glaze for a flavorful punch in each bite.

Welcome to #LemonWeek 2022 hosted by Lynn from Fresh April Flours and Rebecca from Devour Dinner.  This week is sponsored by Rodelle and La Tourangelle. I may have received product samples from these sponsors to help in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own. Come join me and my fellow Lemon Week bloggers as we bring you recipes from appetizers to drinks to entrées and desserts!

A Bundt cake will always be my favorite go to cake for something simple to make that has a big visual impact. And you can never go wrong it seems with lemon.  It’s a simple all around popular flavor.

This cake reminds me of my Lemon Pound Cake with the same tangy citrus flavor reinforced by that lovely lemon glaze. Where the pound cake is great for a family treat, this Lemon Bundt Cake is great for a party.

Where can I go wrong?

The most common pitfall with this cake is over mixing and over baking. Here’s how to avoid those two common pitfalls.

Don’t overmix 

Make sure that you are mixing the wet and dry ingredients thoroughly before combining them. Then as you mix the wet and dry together, use a folding method making sure you are scraping the bottom well and mixing just until they make a batter. 

Don’t overbake

Cakes can be tricky to tell when they are done and can easily get overbaked. Make sure to set a timer! I always set mine for 5-6 minutes before the suggested time window.  It’s really easy to cook it for a little longer but you can’t bring it back if it’s baked too long. 

The best way to test if a cake like this is done is to use a toothpick or a metal skewer and poke the center of the Bundt cake ring.

Note: I find that having a pretty cake stand or cake plate is another great way to level up a simple cake like this.

What size Bundt pan works for this?

This cake was made in a 10 cup Bundt pan.  So you can swap it for any other similar sized Bundt pan. Check out a few options you could use below.

The fancier the bundt pan the more care you will need in greasing it. Make sure the baking spray gets into all the little crevices. If you have a problem with cakes sticking try using this cake goop from Sugar Geek Hero.

    Lemon glaze:

    • 1 2/3 cup icing sugar
    • 2-3 Tablespoons lemon juice
    • 1 Tablespoon milk
    • 1 teaspoon lemon zest


    • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease one 9” Bundt pan.
    • In a medium mixing bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
    • Beat butter, lemon zest, and sugar until light and creamy.
    • Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
    • In a separate bowl, mix together milk, lemon juice, sour cream, and vanilla.
    • Alternate adding the milk mixture and flour mixture into a mixing bowl, mixing on low until just combined with each addition, until all ingredients are added.
    • Pour batter into a Bundt pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean in the center. Cool 15-20 minutes before inverting onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
    • Make glaze by mixing icing sugar, lemon zest, milk, and enough lemon juice for desired consistency.
    • Once the cake has cooled completely, pour glaze evenly over the top.


    Don’t overmix the batter. Overmixing will leave you with a tough cake.
    The cake is best eaten day of or the next day
