Reviews for Glazed Lemon Bundt Cake
"Great recipes, however the two of sugar barely made it sweet. I wasn't able to taste the lemon flavor with 11/2 tsp of lemon extract and the lemon peel. But cake is very moist and fluffy"
"I made it dairy free by using Earth Balance instead of butter and vanilla non-dairy milk instead of milk. Such a delicious cake! It was tender, moist, and had just the perfect amount of lemon."
"Yummy lemon flavor. Made for a girl's brunch - PERFECT.To vah4bm: you didn't follow the recipe to a "T", as you stated, if you used skim milk instead of 2%. Also, the recipe directions say to beat in extracts ( with an "s") which would include the vanilla extract. Hmmmm, perhaps your cake didn't turn out because you didn't follow directions . . ."
"This cake is AMAZING!!!! I never have any luck with bundt cakes mine usully turn out dry and crumbly NOT THIS ONE!! This cake baked up Beautifully! Melted in my mouth!! So moist with a beatiful texture!!! I will definitely make this cake again!"
"It looks great, my favorite recipe now, love it !!"
"I made this for my moms birthday and everyone who ate it loved it. It didn't last for more than a day"
"Very good recipe. This makes a nice big,tall cake. It tastes delicious! I sometime add coconut to the batter for additional taste and texture."
"A tall cake with great texture, as others have said. After trying this cake once with lemon flavoring, I substituted coconut extract to make coconut cupcakes, which were great! I used powdered sugar when I made the lemon glaze the first time, so it didn't run too much."
"This is a tasty, most cake with a nice, slightly crunchy, crust. I added poppy seeds & poked holes in the warm cake with a wooden skewer before glazing, so the glaze (which I thickened) would absorb a bit into the cake. Otherwise I followed the directions as given. This is a keeper in my opinion!"
"This recipe is a favorite for when I want something lemon-flavored. It's a little messy when brushing on the glaze, but nothing that a little waxed paper under the cooling rack can't handle. I'm not sure what vah4bm is talking about; I have the original recipe clipping from 1999, and it says "beat in extracts." That includes vanilla."
"I've baked this Bundt Cake Recipe just as is, and it is SUPER DELICIOUS!!! Everyone loved it! Five Stars!!"
"Trying recipe for first time"
"Followed recipe to the letter and it bombed. Batter overflowed the pan, then collapsed. Used skim milk instead of 2%. This recipe is $#!T... useless! Oh, and vanilla is an ingredient but not listed in the directions. The editor needs to rethink his/her attention to detail."
"This recipe was absolutely fabulous. I substituted the flour for cake flour of course and added a teaspoon of almond extract. I also put a 1/2 stick of butter in my glaze to give it a thicker consistency. 5 stars and easy to follow."
"I made this cake for a co-worker who doesn't like traditional birthday cakes (hates frosting)...everybody LOVED it! It is very filling and just the perfect amount of crunchy outside and soft inside."
"Love this moist, tangy cake! Two of my family request this for birthdays instead of "traditional" birthday cake!"
"I like how the out side tasted crunchy...the glaze didnt soak in very good."
"This came out wonderful. I didn't have milk on hand only half and half and I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 margarine as that is what I had. This was light and tasty. I boiled the glaze to melt the sugar before I glazed the cake."
"I made this yesterday to go with a fish and seafood dinner my parents' made. This was excellent! My only criticism is that the glaze wasn't very glazy (not sure that's a word). It wound up being clear and didn't give the cake the nice look. I repeated the glaze without any better luck. I just topped it with powdered sugar and it was great."
"This is my dad'd favorite cake. It isn't dry at all. We love it."
"Delicious cake, easy to make"
"I don't know how many times I've made it! It was the very first cake I ever baked as a 10-year-old. It's loaded with nostalgia for me...but generally speaking, it's very nice and slightly tangy."
"Easy to make, but where is the glaze recipe that it says makes it so good?"
