Fresh Lemons

If you have been following for awhile, you know our lemon tree is overflowing with lemons. Huge lemons, the size of grapefruits!

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 manyΒ  lemon recipes as I can :-).

You will find this easy bundt cake recipe to beΒ moist and delicious.

  16. I love lemons and just made this bunds cake. It turned out very moist/dense inside and looked under cooked, even though I had it in the oven for 55 minutes. I am new to gluten free cooking, any suggestions?

    • Hi Troy, I am happy to help. First, can you please tell me what gluten free flour blend you used?

      • Hi Sandi,
        I used Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose Baking Flour.

        • Hi Troy, I have only used the flour mix you used for fried chicken coating. It contains bean flours, which are very dense. If you click the link gluten free flour blend, you will see I used a very different mix by Bob’s. His 1 to 1 gluten free mix is much lighter than what you used. Using gluten free flours is like doing a chemistry experiment. Each starch, flour, and how finely the flours are milled all play different roles. This is one of my favorite articles on the gluten free flours, and how they behave: http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com/2008/12/baking-cooking-substitutions-for-gluten.html I hope this helps.

          • Thank you so much Sandi. There is loads of helpful information here. I can suddenly see my G/Free cooking taking a positive change for me and my daughter.
            Many Thanks

          • I am so happy I can help. I remember when the kids and I had to go gluten free. It was before there were products in the stores and I had to figure out how to make gluten free bread. I tossed so many attempts straight into the trash. If you ever have any questions, please let me know. My favorite gluten free flour blend is Bob’s 1 to 1 mix Ultimately, it works in almost everything. Plus it has xanthan gum already in it so you don’t have to add more. My other favorites include Authentic Foods Multi Grain blend and Pamela’s Pancake and Baking mix (has nuts though.) Please feel free to ask any questions you have along the way. sandi@fearlessdining.com Also, the mix you have with the bean flours is great for savory things. I use it for eggplant parmesan and frying foods, like fried chicken.

    Thanks so much for the Gluten Free Lemon Bundt Cake with Lemon Icing recipe. I have used it for the last four weekends as a base. I have added different mixtures of sugar (turbine, white cane, and brown) different kinds of flours, even quick oats, and different kinds of fruits. I have a mini bundt pan and a couple of small baking dishes. I keep one, and give the other ones away. It works every time. Since it is sweet enough to add icing, I put the zest in the batter. Still have 15 minutes until my lemon blueberry, raspberry, dark chocolate chip bundt cake is done to have with a cup of coffee. Thank you again!

  18. Sue Fuqua says:

    It is me again……Yes! another success. And it is sweet enough not to have icing!

  19. Can I sub maple syrup for the sugar?

    • Hi Selina,

      I have not tried this recipe with maple syrup. Because it is a liquid, you may need to adjust the dry ingredients. Would you please write back and let us know how it turned out if you try it.

  20. Question? Made the cake per recipe. Used better batter for GF flour. Had to cook it another 20-30 min after the 40 and still a little gummy?? What am I doing wrong??

    Thanks ?

    • Hi Angela, I am not sure since I have never used this flour. I looked online at their ingredients and there is A LOT of starch in their flour blend. I have to think the starch content with the lemon probably is the reason your cake is gummy. I always use Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend or Authentic Foods Multi Blend when I make this recipe.

  21. Hello from ?? Rockies! I’m new to your site & love it! My allergies are many, do you know of a substitute for Xanthan gum, or other Gums? I badly want to make this Lemon Bundt Cake, but know I will need to replace it at the higher 4,600 ft. Altitude here. Thanks for your great site (still happily exploring) & help. Cheers.

    • Hi Elle, thank you so much for your note. I had someone else write about the gums today and I did a quick Google search and see people often use egg white as a substitute. I haven’t tried this, but egg white is pretty sticky so it makes sense. If you try this, could you please come back and let everyone know if it worked? Thank you πŸ™‚

  22. Janice Andreyka says:

    I can’t wait to try this ….. it will be good with iced tea here in the Arizona desert !
    Sandi, thank you for sharing this recipe !!

  23. Wondering if I ca. Sucessfully substitute buttermilk for the coconut milk. I just have a ton of it. Sounds deliscious!

  24. Just wondering how to substitute the sugar and wondering if anyone tried less sugar, sugar substitue/alternatives. Thank you

    • Hi Rachel, I am not sure what sugar substitution would work. I would think less sugar would be fine, and you could easily skip the lemon icing. Please write back and let us know what you try and how it turns out πŸ™‚

  25. Hi Sandi!
    Thank you so much for the recipe! I am planning to make it for a little gathering with some friends tonight! I’ll write another comment later about how it turned out! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you so much Chloe. I had a person write that they used Cup4Cup for this recipe and it didn’t work. The only big difference I could figure is that that particular flour blend has a lot of milk powder in it…and somehow it reacted differently. I am not sure which gluten free flour blend you are using so I did want to mention that just in case you were looking at using that brand.

  26. This was a hit! Made this for a gathering where the host is a gluten-and-dairy-free eater, so I wanted to make sure she could enjoy it! Everyone (including the gluten and dairy lovers) went back for seconds! Next time I might add some lemon zest; I love lemon cakes so I like them to be extra lemony. I used Bob’s Red Mill for both the almond flour and the GF blend and the cake turned out perfectly moist. Thanks for the great, easy recipe!

  27. Brittany Coleman says:

    Sorry for the stupid question, but you list oil (coconut oil in your case) in the ingredients. Is this for the wet ingredients or is this just to put in the pan so it doesn’t stick? Sorry, I’m a very inexperienced baker, but wanted to make this for my birthday πŸ™‚

    • Hi Brittany, no question is stupid. When I was learning how to make gluten free baked goods, I had SO many fails. It is hard. Coconut oil is considered one of the wet ingredients. I also like to use a separate coconut spray oil (Trader Joe’s) to spray pans so nothing sticks. I hope this helps, feel free to ask any question :-). Sandi
