Here is a lemon next to a pineapple. They are almost the same size. Totally crazy, right?
We have been farming lemons out the best we can to friends. Last year we had so many lemons the branches were breaking on our tree. This year we are being much more proactive and I am using lemons in as many lemon recipes as I can :-).

How to make a gluten free bundt cake:
The first step is to add your dry ingredients and whisk to blend.
Whisk your wet ingredients in a bowl.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just barely mixed.
Don’t over-mix the cake batter or your cake will be denser. Spray a bundt pan with coconut oil and pour the batter into the bundt cake pan.
Bake at 350F degrees for 50 minutes.
How to tell when the bundt cake is done?
The best way to see if a bundt cake is ready is to insert a toothpick into the cake. If the toothpick comes up clean, the cake is done. If there is batter or crumbs on the toothpick, bake it a little longer!

Tools You Need to Make This Recipe:
