Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt Cake – tender and moist lemon poppy seed cake with a lemon butter glaze.
Good morning, and happy Monday friends! This week’s new recipe is my Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt Cake. I shared a video on my IGTV last week with the tutorial and recipe, but didn’t get a chance to write the blog post with all the details until now.
The recipe for this bundt cake is simply my Lemon Poppy Seed Cake, but with a glaze instead of buttercream. I know many of you have already fallen in love with this cake recipe from the layered version, so I know you’ll absolutely die over this bundt cake version, as well.
And if you haven’t tried this cake or even a layered cake yet, I think you’ll find that this bundt cake is not only delicious, but super easy too!
The recipe for this Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt Cake is the exact same as the layered cake, but the time and temperature we are baking the bundt cake is different. When we combine the wet and dry ingredients it will be a lot! Because we have too much batter in one pan, we have to bake at a lower temperature for a longer time so we get a more even bake on this cake. This is a rich and dense cake that tastes divine!
The key to making sure your Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt cake doesn’t stick to the pan is twofold:
- Make sure to spray your pan with nonstick spray and dust it with flour.
- Allow your cake to cool completely for at least 30 to 60 minutes before you invert it onto a wire rack.
Lemon Butter Glaze
The glaze is super simple, but don’t let that fool you! This glaze is what makes the cake, in my opinion. You’ll simply combine melted butter, lemon juice and powdered sugar. That’s it!
You’ll see in the picture above that I’ve placed my Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt Cake on a cooling rack on top of a jelly roll pan. I did this so that I could coat my bundt cake with the lemon butter glaze several times. After the first glaze, scoop the leftover glaze back into your bowl and pour it over the cake again. I did this about four times. I then placed my cake on a cake stand with a rim and poured the glaze over the cake one more time. This will then allow the cake to soak up the glaze from the bottom, as well. This is the bundt pan I use. Fun thing I learned- a bundt pan is a type of tube pan! A tube pan is perfect for pound style or butter cakes.
Alright, you’re all set to whip up this delicious and easy bundt cake.
