  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • zest from 1 lemon

  • 2 tbsp sugar


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

  9. Pour the cake batter into your prepared Bundt pan. Use a rubber spatula to smooth the batter.
  10. Bake in a preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  11. Let the cake cool for about 10 minutes in the pan, then turn the cake out onto a plate.
  12. While the cake is cooling, combine the juice from 1/2 of a lemon with 2 tbsp of sugar.
