For the bundt cake

For the glaze


Combine the wet ingredients

  • Combine butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Then blend the eggs into the butter (1 egg at a time).
  • Add vanilla, lemon juice, and lemon zest to the batter. Mix just to combine.

Sift the dry ingredients

  • Sift 2 1/2 cups flour, baking powder, and salt into a separate bowl using a sifter.

Mix in the buttermilk

  • Add a little bit of the sifted flour to the batter (about 1/2 cup at time). Then a little bit of buttermilk. Keep switching flour, then buttermilk, mixing in between.
  • Combine 1 tbsp flour with the chopped strawberries. Then fold the strawberries into the batter using a spatula.

Prepare the bundt pan and bake

  • Pour the batter into a greased bundt cake pan. Bake at 340 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 hour (or until a toothpick comes out clean after piercing the center of the cake). Once it's baked, remove the cake from the bundt pan and let it cool on a cooling rack.

Glaze it up

  • Combine the powdered sugar with 1 tbsp milk and 1 tsp lemon juice. Pour this glaze over the cooled bundt cake. Top with fresh strawberries.


Helpful Tips
  • Use softened butter- since the butter needs to be whipped, you want to make sure its softened to room temperature so smoothes out nicely.
  • Coat the strawberries in flour- You do not want to skip this step. Coating the fruit will help prevent them from sinking to the bottom.
  • Spray the bundt pan with nonstick spray- There's nothing worse than a bunt cake stuck to the pan. If it's stuck, it's sure to fall apart, yikes! Grease it up as much as you can.
