Have I ever mentioned that I love anything lemon? I can’t resist a slice of lemon cake, a glass of lemonade, lemon meringue pie, lemon cookies, chicken and lemon… Lemon! Lemon! Lemon! This Meyer Lemon Bundt Cake is the perfect dessert to crave my sweet and lemony tooth! 

The batter is bursting with Meyer lemon flavour from the juice and the grated lemon peel. I said grated not zested. Bust out that big grater and grate the peel of the Meyer Lemon before juicing it. Zesting leaves you with tiny sprinkles of lemon peel in the cake, but that’s not what I love. I love big pieces of grated lemon peel. It packs a delicious punch and the cake will look so pretty when you slice into it. Meyer Lemon Bundt Cake l Recipe NomadAnd if you don’t have Meyer Lemons, just use regular lemons. No big deal in this recipe. I promise.

While it’s perfectly tasty without any icing on top, a drizzle of Honey Lemon Icing really gives the cake an intense lemon flavour! To add a crunch element to the cake I crushed up some almonds and sprinkled it over the wet icing. That was a really good idea! Meyer Lemon Bundt Cake l Recipe Nomad

When I took the cake out of the oven it cracked! I was devastated thinking this cut was going to ruin the presentation of the cake. After a few minutes of contemplation, I decided to just slice into it and spread the pieces out a bit. The result was absolutely beautiful if I may say so myself!
