Wondering what a bundt cake is exactly? It’s a round cake with a hole in the center that adds an elegant touch to any presentation. Not only does it look impressive, but thanks to its shape, it requires less baking time compared to a 9×13″ cake. However, this recipe works well with either size. As for toppings, it’s entirely optional. You can keep it simple with a dusting of powdered sugar or explore other options like homemade cream cheese or vanilla frosting, or even a scoop of ice cream.

If you’re looking for a quicker baking option, feel free to use the same batter to make mini cupcakes. These bite-sized treats are perfect for little ones and are a delightful combination of muffins and cupcakes.

Lemon Cake in Bundt Pan

A 12-cup bundt pan is the most common size and can be easily found in stores or online. The baking time specified in this recipe is suitable for that size. If you prefer individual servings without the need for slicing, you can also bake mini bundt cakes. Check out our post for the specific timing. It’s a fun way to serve this cake!

Here’s a simple step-by-step guide:

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the lemon cake mix and lemon pudding mix.
  3. Add the eggs, water, and vegetable oil. Mix well until you achieve a smooth texture.
  4. Fold in 1 teaspoon of lemon zest.
  5. Pour the batter into a bundt pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray (a 10.5-inch pan works well).
  6. Bake for approximately 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out with moist crumbs attached.
  7. Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly. Then, place a large plate or platter on top of the pan and gently flip it over to release the cake. You can dust it with powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness, if desired.

Now that your cake has cooled, it’s time to plate it! Allow it to cool on a cooling rack for 10-15 minutes after removing it from the oven. Alternatively, you can let it cool completely at room temperature. This step is crucial for the best results.
