I have to be honest, I’ve never had a cake that incorporated fresh orange and lemon flesh before. Have you? Folks this citrus cake takes an orange and lemon cake to the next level!
Triple Citrus Bundt Cake
This recipe from Marthastewart.com takes the bounty of the citrus season and incorporates them into a delectable bundt cake. There’s a reason its called Triple Citrus Bundt Cake – it uses not just orange juice, but the flesh, and zest too. Not just orange but lemon juice and lemon flesh too! And on top of that – the cake literally gets soaked in a citrus syrup and then topped with a citrus glaze! How much do you like oranges and lemons 🍊🍋?
It must be all the citrus, lots of butter and creme fraiche that makes this cake so delicious! You get a soft buttery cake with a lemony orange flavor in every bite. This cake tastes like you bought it at a gourmet bakery! It tastes awesome!
On a side note, this cake tastes even better the next day as the citrus glaze and syrup have a chance to soak into the cake making it positively over the top delicious. Serve it with a scoop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream and have this be the perfect wintery dessert for a party.
What makes this recipe easy to follow is that there is a video that shows step by step how to make the bundt cake, and to be honest that video was very helpful because the recipe was a little confusing. Having made the cake now, I can tell you that this cake is actually easy to make and I will definitely be making it again! Give it a try! Triple Citrus Bundt Cake on marthastewart.com.
