#BundtaMonth : Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt Cake


I was surfing the net for a lemon poppy seed bundt cake and this recipe  from TLC caught my eye.  Curious about the the recipe as it called for more egg whites, as well as the method, I set off to try.  After adding in the milk and vanilla, the batter curdled and I had to quickly add in flour to absorb the moisture.   I was quite dubious about the taste and texture of this cake then.  As I've brushed on lemon glaze I waited patiently till the next day before I could cut it up..........


 




Not the least bit disappointed ...... because the cake turned out moist although a bit dense but it was crunchy and tangy ..... full of lemony oomph!

  4. Hi Cheah, I really love your cake mould. The cake looks good too. Is it a must to use a Bundt mould for this cake?

    1. No, you can use a square cake pan if you wish. But then you just brush on the lemon glaze on the surface. If you want to prick holes, you'll need to overturn it and do so on the base.
