Lemon Bundt Cake - I Like Big Bundts 2011
I have about 10 minutes to write up this post. One of my favorite shows, Covert Affairs is back on TV tonight...and I have a book due in a day that I have to finish! :)

This recipe is from the folks at Cook's Illustrated (America's Test Kitchen) and features a double glaze...you pour half the glaze when the cake comes out of the oven, and more an hour later. Um, I was a little distracted and use the whole glaze on the first round, and just whipped up some more for the second one.

Lemon Bundt Cake - I Like Big Bundts 2011
Earlier, on Day #2, I made King Arthur Flour's Lemon Bliss Bundt. That Bundt was soft and light. According to Cook's Illustrated, this cake will be softer the first day and then become more like a pound cake the next day. I tried it the second day and it was poundcake like. The King Arthur Cake never got to the second day...the library ate it up in a few hours! Both Bundts are good...try them both and let me know what you liked best! ;) - mary the food librarian

I love Bundt cakes and probably make them more than any other cake. This one looks great. Love lemon!

The fact that you "oops" forgot and poured all the glaze in and then had to make another batch must have made that cake amazing. My mouth is watering just thinking about the lemonyness. I love lemon baked goods so very, very much.

Oo, I may take that challenge--I did this bundt two years ago... still haven't decided which bundt I want to do for the big day! Ah!
