Lemon Cake

Do you ever have deja vu about a post..??
Like, when you start doing the post and, somehow, it seems you've done it before.?

This one seems like that to me.....
however, I can't find anything in my list of posts or drafts.

SOOO,,,,
if you've seen it before...SORRY.


A bright red bundt pan


and
LEMONS

make for a beautiful CAKE.


I took the cake outside before putting the glaze on to get a good photo...
then.....


I had company...

"Ummm, what IS it that smells so dang good..?"

Get back, Athena....this is NOT dog food.


Back inside for the LEMON GLAZE...
ummmm...
I do love me some lemon.

  I put a little Lemon Zest on top of the glaze..




"I see you back there, Cuma..."
Sorry, girls...cake's not good for doggies.
OMGOSH...
I just this minute saw that little fly on the edge of the plate..
♪ SHOO, FLY....don't bother me...♪♪ 


"OK, Cuma....come on...
she's not gonna give us even a bite..."

hahhaaa...sorry, girls.



No recipe here, ladies...
just a lemon box cake, cooked in a bundt pan
using buttermilk instead of water...and an extra egg, of course.
It goes without saying that I added extra Vanilla. 


Glaze is powdered sugar and lemon juice with a touch of cream.

I added drops of yellow cake coloring for a luscious color...a very pale yellow...
(looks totally white in these photos)


 ...hug your cake with fresh lemon slices and fresh lemon zest on top...
your family will love you forever.
(even if your doggies don't....:>)

  1. What a beautiful cake, B.J.!! It look and sounds delicious, and you've made it sooo pretty. :) I love lemon desserts better than just about anything. I'll definitely have to try this -- my lemon pound cake recipe is a lot of work. ;)

    Have a great day!

  19. Fly on the edge of the plate. Truth in blogging!!! I love it!!!!!!!!

    But am not gonna' say a word, about that amazingly, glorious-looking, mouth watering cake. Not-a-word!!!!!!!!! Because the only dessert I am eating now, is baked fruit with whipped cream, and only on Sundays. And it is delicious. Everything baked, becomes more sweet.

    But it isn't a decadent Lemon Cake either. ,-)))))))))))

    Hugs,
    Tessa

  32. Oh my, your cake looks out of this world yummy, bj! I sure could go for a big slice with my iced tea right now.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yum. It does look yummy. I'll have to give the recipe to my mother she loves to make bundt cakes.
    I need to buy some lemons now! Thanks for sharing. Have a good week.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh, that looks so very very good! And the little touches of extra color, lemon wedges, and zest are just beautiful. I love the look on the doggie's face. Like ...you mean it's not for me? Really? Ha ha.

    I want to make that cake for Midsummer weekend! I'll have to share it with the fairies, though. They aren't as polite as doggies!

  35. What a delicious looking cake...lemon is so refreshing in summer and light....

  36. Can't get any easier than this for a luscious lemon cake BJ and I have a bundt pan just like yours - only brown.
    My dog has exasperated me more than once photographing food let me tell you. The one time I chose the perfect blueberry muffin and had it on the plate, I went over to the counter for my teacup to add to the photo. Turned my back for 10 seconds and the darn muffin was gone. But picture my little pooch with the whole thing in his mouth looking like a chipmunk and guilty as all get out. LOL
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  37. OH MY!!!! Now you're talkin'. LOVE lemons, and lemon cake is my favorite cake. I have a couple of recipes, but every now and then (when I get a lemon attack), I use a box mix and voila.
    Lemon attack in progress. :)

  38. Oh, my, BJ. You are just too mean to those cute little furry kids. But after looking at that cake, I wouldn't want to share it with anyone either. So pretty and sounds so good for a hot weather dessert..Happy Monday..Judy

  41. I used to make a lemon cake and you made a glaze like this, maybe same recipe, but so fresh tasting. In fact, I have to confess, the first time I made, one, I was very young, like 20 and I ended up eating the whole cake for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in between for 2 days...too funny~

  42. Oh my goodness! I feel so lucky and I can't wait to try this coffee THANK YOU B J, I fixed my email please try this email: gr8tfullblog@gmail.com

  43. Yum, Yum and Double Yum (or is that triple Yum). Lemon is one of my favorite flavors and you've just made my mouth water with these photos. No wonder you didn't share with the dogs!

  44. B.J. I've got plenty of lemons here but no cake mix. I can see I need to bring some along on our next stay. Loved the photos, love, love, love lemons and especially lemon cake!
