I met my soul sister only a few years ago, we’re constantly encouraging one another between recipes, health, fitness and creating a warm environment for our families. I had some friends over for dinner last week and she stole the show with her delicious lemon bundt cake. It had the perfect balance of sweet and tanginess.

Ingredients

1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)

2 1/2 cups granulated sugar

6 large eggs

3 cups all purpose flour

2 tbsp finely grated lemon zest

1/3 cup fresh lemon juice (approximately 2 lemons)

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup sour cream

Preheat oven 350 F (175C)

Lemon syrup

1/2 cup fresh lemon juice

1/2 cup granulated sugar

Combine the 2 ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. whisk mixture until sugar is absorbed.

Instructions

1- Butter and flour a 12 cup bundt pan, set a side.

2- In a medium bowl, whisk flour, lemon zest, baking soda and set a side.

3-In an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 4-5 minutes.

4-Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition, mix in lemon juice.

5-Reduce mixer speed to low and alternate adding flour mixture and sour cream, beginning and ending with flour mixture.

6-Mix until just incorporated (do not over mix).

7-Scrape down the sides of the mixer, pour batter into the baking pan and firmly tap pan (picking up 2-3 inches off the counter and dropping pan back on the counter) to remove any air bubbles.

8-Bake until toothpick comes out clean, 55-50 minutes.

9-Allow cake to cool before cutting (30 minutes)

10-Poke holes all over the cake and brush with lemon syrup. If cake doesn’t absorb all the syrup, wait 20 minutes and add the rest.
