Bundt cakes are my favorite. They are quick to make…mix, pour, bake. Once cooled, you poor over a simple, beautiful glaze. It runs down the sides, making it completely irresistible. I’m a cake girl, not a frosting girl. So I like cake that has a higher cake-to-frosting ratio. Bundts are perfect. Oh, they are stunningly rustic too!
This gluten free vegan lemon blackberry bundt cake really is as good as it looks. The cake is very similar to a moist pound cake. It’s packed with fresh lemon too (you KNOW how I’m obsessed with lemon). That glaze. I can’t stop thinking about that glaze. Made from fresh blackberries, it just enhances the flavor of the lemon cake. So fresh and so bright. I think, actually I’m certain, you will fall in love with this cake at first bite!
