Tools You Need to Make This Recipe:

  1. Bundt pan. This non-stick bundt pan is key to create this bundt cake…otherwise it would be titled sheet pan cake πŸ™‚

  6. Dear Sandi, your bundt cake looks perfect. I know I would love this…lemon cake is one of my favorites. xo, Catherine

  7. I am so jealous you have a lemon tree!! That is very cool. We go lemons nonstop here. My husband makes fun of me when he sees how many I buy each week at the grocery store, but as far as I am concerned, lemons are a staple. I use them so much and I go through them like crazy! Anyway, your bundt cake looks amazing! I’d definitely like to try it! Pinning for later! πŸ™‚

  8. I am allergic to almonds, is the another flour to substitute?

  9. Sandi, your cake looks fantastic, I wish I had some to go with a nice cup of tea πŸ™‚ I’d love to have a citrus tree in my yard, it’s certainly hot enough in Mississippi in the summer for Lemons to grow but it’s a bit too cold in the winter unfortunately.

  10. I love lemon desserts, this bundt cake sounds wonderful, I wish I had a lemon tree too!

  11. Lemons the size of a grapefruit? Sign me up πŸ™‚

    This cake is so pretty — looks delish β™₯

  12. I love bundt cake and the lemon is perfect for summer.

  13. I love lemon, but I’ve never actually made a bundt cake. It looks so good Sandi, I think I need to add a bundt pan to my collection!

  14. Oh my. I love lemon baked goods and this is calling to me. πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for sharing at Savoring Saturdays, Sandi!

  15. This cake looks so light & flavorful! I love using citrus, it’s such a terrific flavor – definitely on the radar to make this!

  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?

  17. Sue Fuqua says:

    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™‚
