Greetings friends and welcome to my first NEW recipe of 2020. "But it's April 8th!" You say? Why yes it is. In the spirit of full disclosure - I actually shot this recipe last May. I know, crazy, right?! Please don't judge me. With my 2019 editorial calendar, the change in seasons, and my new job, I never had a good moment to post it. So here we are. But really...couldn't we all use a bright and cheerful lemon bundt cake right about now anyway? Let's just all agree that this worked out for the best.
As you could probably guess from my blog hiatus, it has been a struggle to find balance between work and extracurriculars. Now that I have been forced to slow down, I am reminding myself of all of the things that bring me so much joy - namely this place. You. I absolutely love creating and experimenting in the kitchen and sharing delicious recipes with this community.
These last few weeks have been tough, to say the least, but I am confident that we will bounce back stronger and more united. One thing that has been so neat to witness is the number of people cooking and baking at home for the first time in a long time! I hope that trend continues long after we are allowed back in public.
This seemed like the perfect recipe to share during Holy Week and leading up to Easter. This delightful lemon bundt cake is not too sweet, not too tart, and perfectly moist. The secret to making this lemon bundt cake extra special is the syrup used to coat the cake prior to glazing. It keeps the moisture sealed in while giving an extra lemony kiss. It also helps the glaze really stick to the cake.
I know this Easter is going to be a lot different than years' past without being able to physically attend church, or gather with with friends and family. But I encourage you to still find ways to celebrate the joy of this season. Use this time of slowness to listen, and remember what is most important. We are all in this together.
And for my loyal followers and friends who have supported and championed me during the blog hiatus the last few months - thank you from the bottom of my heart. I could not continue without you. Your encouraging messages have been thoughtful reminders that we have a special community here, something that I do not take for granted.
Happy Easter everyone!Print
