Memorial weekend is upon us! Of course, this weekend is truly about remembering and honoring those who gave their lives to serve our country. So to the men and women who have served or continue to serve our country, I thank you for your sacrifice and dedication!
I always look forward to this long weekend, typically spent with family and of course food! This year my birthday falls over Memorial weekend (don’t ask my age; I’m not telling!) and I knew when I was writing this blog that I just HAD to make a cake! This summer, bundt cakes are all the trend. To honor Memorial Day, I made it red, white and blue. This lemon bundt cake isn’t just beautiful to look it, it’s delicious, too!
Wow your guests this Memorial Day with this festive red, white and blue lemon bundt cake. They’ll think you’re a pro baker – it’ll be our little secret how easy this dessert really is!
Preheat oven to 325°F. Combine Packet 1, ½ cup melted butter and 1 cup water in a large bowl; blend well. Do not over mix; batter will be lumpy. Divide batter evenly into 3 bowls. Add red food coloring to one and blue food coloring to another. The more color you add, the more saturated the color will be. I used about 1/3 of the bottle. Gently fold in until food coloring is even.
Spread batter into a greased Bundt pan in layers. I put red on the bottom, white in the middle and blue on top so that when I flipped the pan they were in the traditional red, white and blue order.
Bake 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely. Remove from pan. Combine Packet 2 with remaining 2 tablespoons melted butter and 1-2 tablespoons water; whisk until smooth. Drizzle over top and sides of pound cake. Surround cake with fresh berries.
