“There’s a hole in this cake!”

LEMON BUNDT CAKE
Printable recipe here

IMG_6784
3¼ cups cake flour, sifted
2 tsp baking poweder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
¾ cup sour cream
finely grated zest of 1 lemon
¼ cup lemon juice
2 Tbl vanilla
4 large eggs
2¼ cups sugar
¾ cup canola oil

Position rack in middle of oven and preheat to 350°.  Generously brush bundt pan with shortening and dust with flour.

Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in large bowl and set aside.  In another bowl, whisk sour cream, lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla and set aside.  In another bowl (dishes, I know) whisk eggs and sugar together stirring vigorously to lighten eggs.  Gradually whisk in oil until evenly combined.  Add sour cream mixture and stir together.  Add the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon just until combined but still a bit lumpy.  Pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake until cake pulls away from sides of the pan and a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean – about 50 minutes.  Cool 10 minutes, then unmold cake onto a rack placed over a baking sheet.  Cool.  (The cake can be prepared to this point a day ahead.)

When ready to serve, spoon some of the glaze (below) over the top and reserve the rest for serving on the sliced cake.

I'm love the quote when she is telling her mom that he's a vegetarian and her response is...ok, we'll have lamb! :) I know it's not an exact quote...but that scene always makes me laugh :)
