Lemon Bundt Cake - Tonight

Even though the bananas for the banana bundt were unusable, I was determined to put on a show for Tuesday's TWD night, so I found a very promising looking recipe for a Lemon Bundt from Recipezaar. It was easy to make and quite quick - the baking time is an hour but I think mine was done in about 50 minutes - it's a teeny bit dry around the edges even then.

Right now it's cooling but I'll pour some lemon glaze over it before cutting it. I think it will make a nice cake for a hot, humid summer day.

Lemon Bundt Cake Recipe - From Recipezaar

3/4 cup butter, room temperature
8 egg yolks (save the whites for another cake recipe)
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon lemon, rind of, grated
1 teaspoon lemon extract
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy.
Beat egg yolks in separate bowl until light and lemon colored.
Blend into creamed mixture. Sift the dry ingredients well.
Add to creamed mixture alternately with the milk blending well.
Stir and blend in vanilla, lemon rind and lemon extract. Place batter in a well greased and floured Bundt pan.
Bake in a preheated 325F oven about 1 hour or until tested done. Cool in pan 15 minutes and carefully remove. Glaze if desired with a lemon glaze made from powdered sugar and lemon juice.
