Looking for a great Glazed Lemon Bundt Cake recipe? This light and springy cake glazed with zesty lemon juice icing is one of our family’s favorite desserts! For more recipes see my Favorite Recipes page.
We enjoy this yummy all-time favorite lemon cake two ways. You can make it in a bundt cake pan or a loaf pan to more like the Star Bucks version. The base of the cake is made from a cake mix but with our own measurement of ingredients to make the perfect almost homemade cake.
The bundt version has a thin icing glaze with fresh lemon juice and confectionary sugar. For the loaf version, we slather the icing on thick for a zesty sweetness to the top of the cake. Here is our family’s fav cake recipe!
