Meyer Lemon Bundt Cake

Blogger Hannah Kaminski invented this cake during what she describes as one very cold and difficult winter: “Lemons to me embody edible sunshine, so I just piled on the juice and zest.” If you can’t find Meyer lemons, substitute regular lemons.

Comments on this Recipe

I found this cake to be dry. It had a lovely flavor and the icing was quite delicious (and successful). I started with cashews that had been refrigerated and soaked in water overnight. This shortened the process in the blender. In one to two minutes the icing was ready for the cake and no straining was needed.

Can I substitute rice milk for the soy milk? I am allergic to soy
