Can we pause for a minute to chat about staple recipes? There are a few recipes I feel like every home cook should have on hand, and a good bundt cake recipe is one of them.
Why, you ask?
Bundt cakes are super easy to make and they come out gorgeous every time. No need to mess with finicky layer cakes and icing. Glaze is the perfect topping for bundt cakes and you drizzle it right on top.
This pound cake is extra moist (sorry, had to!) because I’m not just using butter; the cake and the glaze have PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese in them! In the
I’m obsessed with baking with PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese and I’m really excited to be partnering with them for the whole year!
So, let’s make this cake!
We start by making a simple pound cake, which is simply a pound of butter, sugar and flour. For flavor, we’re using beautiful Meyer lemons, but you can certainly use regular lemons if you can’t find them.
This cake is baked to perfection, cooled, and then drizzled all over with cream cheese glaze.
Enjoy, friends! I can’t wait for you to try this one out!
