Lemon Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

Posted on

This sunny lemon bundt cake is just the dessert to brighten up any day. I have been looking forward to Spring to arrive and lemon is just one of those flavors that reminds me of spring and summertime.

The lemon peel provides a nice zing in every bite. The thick cream cheese frosting gives the golden cake an extra moist and delicious flavor. Another great thing about this recipe is that it can be made ahead, because it stays moist for at least a few days.
