This was absoultely, positively, delicious!!! It was very easy to make. Because I made it in a stoneware bundt pan, I ended up cooking it an extra 20 minutes. It came out of the pan beautifully. The glaze pools around the cake, so I kept spooning it back on until the whole cake was covered. Because of this, I'll pour the glaze on a separate pan next time and tansfer it to the serving dish when it has hardened a bit (just to make it a little neater). I made it for Valentine's Day, so after adding the glaze, I added some pink and white heart-shaped sprinkles while it was still warm, and they set into the glaze. It looked beautiful! The glaze soaked into the cake at the bottom and made a crust all around and the taste was just perfect. I will be making this many times!
The flavor of this cake is outstanding. Just the right amount of lemon flavor. I was surprised, I expected the taste to be more overpowering with all the lemon juice and extract in it.
I absolutely loved this.
The only issue I had, and that's probably on me, was that the glaze did not stay on top of the cake, it soaked into the cake. I reapplied every so often, and only used about half of the glaze, but I ended up with no glaze on top and a sugary, grainy, sticky layer on the bottom. I think I didn't bake the cake long enough, it was done but still quite pale on top and extremely moist and dense inside. Definitely not crumbly.
I will make this again, it just tastes too good, and that time I will bake it longer and see if that helps.
I thought 2 1/3 cups of sugar seemed like a huge amount, so I cut it down to 1 cup. I also used only 3/4 of the oil. I wanted to do half applesauce, half oil but realized I didn't have applesauce. Despite these changes it still worked out well. It was plenty sweet enough especially with the glaze. I didnt have lemon extract but substituted lemon zest, about 2 Tbsp. The texture seemed a little dense , probably due to these changes, but it was still worth serving to company.
Amazing! I followed the recipes completely without any changes and the cake turned out moist, tangy and sweet. THANK YOU!!!
