How to make Bundt Cake Glaze
Firstly, combine powdered sugar with freshly squeezed lemon juice. Add 2 tablespoons of water. Check the consistency of the icing. If it is too thick add a little more water. It it will become too watery add some powdered sugar. You just need to find a perfect balance. However, try not to make it too watery or too thick.
Tips to make Moist Cake
- In this bundt cake the almond flour adds some moisture. It has equal amount of all purpose flour and almond flour. I don’t recommend to replace the almond flour with another flour.
- Also, add more vanilla extract if you prefer stronger flavor.
- Bake in 9″ bundt cake pan or preferably smaller. I used my 9″ because this is the one that I have at home. The cake wasn’t very high but it was perfect. However, I think smaller pan would be better.
- Moreover, glaze with lemon icing when the cake is not hot. Otherwise the icing will melt and it will drip out from the bundt cake.
- In addition, add silvered almonds exactly at the same time when glazing.
