We're thrilled to share @jesspcooks recipe for a delightful Lemon & Orange Bundt Cake. This cake is the perfect balance of zesty lemons and juicy oranges, resulting in a moist and flavourful dessert that will brighten up your day. Whether you're hosting a gathering or simply craving something sweet, this citrus-infused bundt cake is sure to impress.

For the cake:
250g softened butter, plus extra to grease
2 tbsp plain flour to grease
300g caster sugar
4 large eggs
225g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 lemon, zest and juice
1 orange, zest
1 tsp vanilla extract

For the icing:
1 lemon, zest and juice
250g icing sugar, sifted


1. Preheat the oven to 160°C fan. Melt 2 tbsp of butter and brush inside the Nordic Ware Heritage Bundt Pan - 6 Cup. Sprinkle on the plain flour and swirl around to stick to the greased tin, tipping out any excess.

2. Cream together room temperature butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time until well combined.

3. Sift in flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt. Then add vanilla, lemon zest, orange zest and lemon juice and fold the mixture with a rubber spatula, until just combined.

4. Pour the cake mix into the prepared tin. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.

5. Remove from the oven and leave in the tin until it has cooled enough to handle. Cover with foil to create a layer of steam in the pan helping with the release of the cake. Once cooled, invert the tin to release the cake.

6. To make the icing, mix lemon juice (start with 1.5 tablespoons) into the icing sugar to give a thick but pourable icing; if it is too runny, add more icing sugar. Pour the icing over the cake and top with lemon or orange zest.

This Lemon & Orange Bundt Cake is a true crowd-pleaser, combining the bright flavours of citrus with a tender crumb. The tangy glaze adds an extra burst of sweetness that perfectly complements the citrus notes. So, why not try this recipe and let your taste buds embark on a delightful journey of tangy and refreshing flavours? Happy baking!
