Lemon drizzle bundt cake with sugared raspberries and redcurrants

Slice of lemon drizzle bundt cake

For some reason, I have always been under the impression that baking a bundt cake would be incredibly difficult. One of my main concerns being that the cake would get stuck inside the tin, I greased mine well with butter and once cooled it turned out from the tin perfectly retaining all the detail. Phew!

Now I have my Tefal Cuisine Companion it makes short work out of making batter for cakes and so I want to try as many variations as possible and also challenged myself to bake once a week. We are always having visitors popping in and out and what’s nicer than being able to offer them a slice of homemade cake? Plus it helps make me appear a domestic Goddess when the reality is it most likely only took me a short amount of time to knock a cake up (shhh don’t tell anyone)

I have been making the loaf version of lemon drizzle cake for many years. The recipe is foolproof and you will end up with a perfectly moist and zingy lemon drizzle every single time and who doesn’t love lemon cake?!

What I have discovered with the Bundt tin is that it cooks batter much quicker than a traditional tin. I think this is a combination of not being able to line the tin due to the design and that it is aluminium and gets hotter. If you have a cake recipe that you always use and are tempted to try it in a bundt tin then I would recommend cutting the cooking time in half and checking your cake regularly so it doesn’t burn.

Enough chat and on with the recipe…
