Lemon Bundt Cake

Updated: Dec 12, 2023

Isn’t it great when you fancy a cup of tea and there is already a small tea cake or something yummy to nibble on along with it? This lemon bundt cake goes in the oven in the morning as soon as I wake up. I love that I don’t need a mixer for this recipe. A whisk and a bowl is enough. I pop this cake in the oven, get the kids ready for school, pack lunches then it’s all cooked and ready to be iced, before breakfast.
