My husband’s birthday is this weekend, and it is time for me to make something special to tempt his sweet tooth. He is not fond of normal birthday cakes but loves any desserts with lemon in them, so this lemon pudding bundt cake should be perfect for this occasion and for any special time.
Richard loves the tangy tartness of a lemon sweet treat and loves it when I make him one. If you enjoy using lemons too, be cure to check out my Gluten free lemon slice recipe. It’s amazing!
This lemon pudding bundt cake will be the hit of my husband’s birthday celebration.
Since I also love lemon desserts, this is sure to be a birthday dinner that we will both enjoy.
I started my assembling all my ingredients. I find it easier, and quicker in the long run, to take out everything I need and get it ready. Nothing makes me more irate than starting a recipe, only to discover later, at a crucial step, that I am out of some ingredient that I just KNOW I have in the pantry.
The lemon pudding bundt cake is made in two steps. I whisked together my dry ingredients and then mixed the wet ingredients until creamy.
Everything gets combined into one bowl and then I poured it into the bundt pan. It’s all I can do not to dive right in there and sample it! (Oh heck…who am I trying to kid…of course I sampled it!)
The lemon pudding bundt cake has a long slow cooking time, so it gave me plenty of time to clean up after the mess I made in my kitchen. My husband is the dish fairy in our house, and I didn’t think it was fair to leave him a big mess on his birthday!
On to a wire rack to cool… I love how BIG the cake is when done. The batter rose to the top of the bundt pan and the cake cooked beautifully!
The lemon buttercream frosting is the perfect way to finish off the cake. It is flavored with fresh lemon juice and lemon zest and has a real zing to the taste.
The cake gets frosted and then I sprinkled some more grated lemon zest on the top and dusted it with a sprinkling of powdered sugar. Can’t wait for my husband to taste this beauty!
The lemon pudding bundt cake is rich and so creamy with the wonderful fresh taste of lemons. It makes a perfect birthday cake for my husband and could be used any time for a really special home made dessert treat.
I love the creaminess that the pudding gives this cake. It is just full of the spring time taste of lemons. We both loved the taste of it and will not wait until birthday time to try it again!
