Triple Citrus Bundt Cake

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! 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 🍊🍋?  This recipe from Marthastewart.com takes the bounty of the citrus season and incorporates them into a delectable bundt cake.

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 you can even have this be the perfect wintery dessert for a party.
