This Lemon Wow Bundt Cake is for all the lemon lovers out there. One of the more popular bundt cake recipes on this blog is my Shirley Temple Bundt Cake.

Not only is it a beautiful looking cake, but it’s also delicious! While both recipes are delish, when I have a craving for lemon cake, this is my go-to recipe.

The first time I made this Lemon Wow Bundt Cake, I was a little concerned that the cake would turn out a little too tart, but to my surprise, it turned out great! This time around, I decided to make a Cream Cheese Frosting to go with this awesome bundt cake.

Just because I decided to use my Cream Cheese Frosting, it sure doesn’t mean you have to.

I also have a fabulous Boiled Icing recipe that is just as delicious. Oh, and if you prefer orange to lemon, check out my Orange Soda Bundt Cake.

While you can pretty much use any brand of cream cheese, I highly recommend you use Philadelphia brand cream cheese. You will taste the difference.
