Recipe- Lemon Bundt Cake With Chocolate Glaze

I have always loved lemon desserts. Whether it’s in form of a cake, pie, macaron, cheesecake or anything else, if there’s lemon involved I want it in my plate. I think the tangy lemon flavors really helps in balancing the flavors and that’s what makes lemon desserts so delicious. Since Easter is just around the corner, I thought of sharing a simple dessert with you guys, which would look great on your Easter table. Actually hubby loves lemon desserts too so I am going to bake this cake for him.

This lemon bundt cake comes together really quickly. I used lemon extract, lemon juice and lemon zest to get the real lemon flavor. Here I would like to mention that please use fresh lemon juice in this recipe. The bottled lemon juice cannot really match up to the fresh zest and juice. I always think that Bundt Cakes are showstopper desserts.
