Lemon Poppy Bunt Cake Tutorial, Giveaway at Sweet Monkey Tots and Friday Fun Link Up Party #3 !!!

Friends keep telling me to do tutorials on my blog. However I am not one to make crafts like I use too I haven't been inspired to do much of anything lately. I prayed and asked the Lord if He would give me a good tutorial idea for my blog. He did as always He never fails me and He loves it when I ask Him for even the smallest things. Thank you Father! I thought well I have always loved to bake and cook maybe I will do tutorials on that.

My photos are not too great I wanted everything to be bright and cheery but we have a dark kitchen because it's centered in our home so I apologize for the dark photos. I found this recipe and altered it to a bunt cake and added my own glaze to it and lemon zest. I give these as gifts and bake them for my Dad's cafe and it's a huge hit with everyone. It's not from scratch like I usually do but it's quick and easy recipe that is semi-homemade.

Lemon Poppy Bunt Cake

Ingredients :
18-1/4 oz. pkg. lemon cake mix
3-1/2 oz. pkg. instant lemon pudding mix
4 eggs
1/2 cup of oil
1 cup of water
2 teaspoons of poppy seeds
1 teaspoons of lemon zest

1 cup of powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons of lemon juice

How to make the batter:
Blend all ingredients together except for the powdered sugar and lemon juice for the glaze. Pour into a greased and floured bunt cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 55 minutes depending on your oven.

How to make the glaze:
In a small bowl mix the powdered sugar and lemon juice and adjust it until you reach a pourable glaze not too thin not too thick.

After removing the bunt cake from the oven let it cool for about 10 minutes before turning it upside down unto your plate. Pour glaze over the top of the cake. It's now ready to serve yumm!! Enjoy!
