I have been on a lemon kick lately so I gravitated towards the lemony bundt cakes when I was debating which cake to make - it really didn't take me long to settle on a lemon poppy seed flavor profile! This cake is fantastic - it makes a great snack cake, you can add an optional lemony glaze for extra moisture and sweetness, but I prefer to keep my bundt cakes fairly simple - I feel like it makes it easier to justify eating them for breakfast in the morning... because it's really just a muffin... in cake form... this is what I tell myself... don't burst my bubble.
Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt Cake
2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons poppy seeds
3/4 cup butter, softened to room temperature
2 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried lemon zest
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sour cream
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 10-cup bundt pan with baker's spray and set aside.
- In a medium bowl combine the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and poppy seeds. Whisk to combine and set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the softened butter and sugar and whip until creamy and lightened in color, scraping down the sides as needed. Add the eggs 1 at a time, scraping down between additions as needed. Blend in the vanilla, lemon juice, zest, vegetable oil, and sour cream and blend until all are well combined.
- On low speed, add in the dry ingredients and blend just until combined. Do not overmix.
- Scrape the prepared batter into the prepared bundt pan and bake in the preheated oven for 45-55 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
- Place cake on a cooling rack and allow to rest in pan for 15-30 minutes, before inverting and allowing cake to complete cooling on the rack.
