  4. In a large bowl whisk the eggs, vanilla and lemon zest.

  7. Pour into your bundt pan and smooth the surface.
  8. Bake for 30 mins. (check your cake after 25 mins) The cake is done when it’s a golden brown color and a toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Let it cool in the pan for 5 minutes then turn it out onto a cooling rack.


  1. Melt the butter over medium heat, once it is melted add the lemon zest and continue to simmer until the butter is a golden brown color. Keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn!
  2. Put the powdered sugar in a medium glass measuring cup. Add the browned butter and whisk together.
  3. Add 1-3 tsp of hot water one at a time until you reach the desired pouring consistency.
  4. Pour the glaze over the cooled cake and serve.


To make your own buttermilk put 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice into a liquid measuring cup and fill to 1 cup with milk. Let it sit for 5 minutes.

If you decide you don’t want lemon in your glaze you can add 1 tsp of vanilla instead.
