How to make strawberry lemon bundt cake

The recipe for this bundt cake is easy and quick to prepare.  With just a few simple ingredients and some basic baking techniques you can prepare a beautiful cake that is sure to delight. 

First, make sure to grease well your bundt cake pan and dust it with flour, to make sure it comes out easily after baking.

Prepare the strawberry cake batter

Begin by whisking together the dry ingredients and use a blender to puree the fresh strawberries and set aside.

Continue by mixing the butter with sugar, oil lemon zest, and vanilla until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time and mix until well incorporated. Gradually add the flour mixture alternating with the buttermilk and strawberry puree. At this point, you can add the red coloring if you want your cake to have a stronger pink color. That is optional. 

In the end, toss the chopped strawberries with some flour and gently incorporate them into the strawberry batter. You can also choose to leave them out but I love how they add a fruity flavor and texture to every bite. 

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. It may take about 60-70 minutes. 

Once the cake is baked to perfection, invert and let it cool completely on a wire rack. 

Prepare the white chocolate and lemon ganache

Melt the white chocolate and cream over a bain-marie over low heat. It is essential to let it cool until thickens slightly.  If you will try to glaze the cake immediately it will pour off the cake. Glaze the bundt cake and decorate with fresh strawberry halves.

You can also consider using other glazes or leaving the glaze out and simply dust the cake with powdered sugar.  

Whether you’re serving this Strawberry Lemon Bundt Cake for dessert or enjoying a slice with a cup of tea in the afternoon, it is sure to delight your taste buds. With its fresh, fruity flavors and beautiful presentation, this cake is a wonderful addition to any spring or summer menu.
