Lemon Lover's Bundt Cake

The real star of this pretty cake is the
Nordic Ware Heritage Bundt Pan.
The deep swirl pattern makes any cake spectacular!
 This recipe is from the 70's and starts with
cake mix and Jello. Note: Depending on how
  intense you want the lemon flavor, you can
either use lemon or yellow cake mix.
When I use the DH Lemon Supreme cake
 mix I sometimes don't even need the Jello.
I've done it both ways.
 Mix in oil, water and eggs.
 Beat 4 minutes.
 Pour into a prepared bundt pan
(sprayed with Baker's Secret or any baking spray)
Bake until golden; about 35-40 minutes.
 Let cool on a rack for 15-20 minutes.
 Invert onto a pretty cake stand.
The pan easily released the cake.
 Look at those deep perfect swirls!
 Perfect for catching the glaze.
I love how easy and pretty bundt cakes are.
 I bought the Rose Bundt  pan several 
years ago and now have a nice little
 collection of pretty bundts. I often find them on 
sale; it's hard to resist.
Add more glaze or dust with powdered sugar,
 or do both!
Serve a slice plain or top with fresh berries.
It's very moist, tart and sweet.
I like to make a cake for the weekend.
I like to see it's 'lets's have Kaffee und Kuchen'
look on my kitchen island.

Tip: Get info on the pan at Nordic Ware.

  6. Hi Rita, I just popped over from Between Naps on the Porch and anywhere a cake or sweet shows up I'm there! LOL! Ummm, I have an ulterior motive more on the selfish side... I am trying out a monthly "Patisserie Tuesday" blog hope thingy (love that technical terminology :D ) anyway, it is set for the first Tuesday of each month and will remain open for the entire month so you can post more often than just once. I would love to have you participate - it should be loads of fun and we all need sweet ideas as the holidays roll around... anyway - that cake looks scrumptious and thanks for reading through this extra long comment :D Hope to see you there - (this was the first post)
