This Limoncello Bundt Cake is one of those cakes that taste better the longer they sit. The only problem is keeping other people’s hands off of it.


  • 1 (18-ounce) white, yellow or lemon cake mix
  • 1 (4 serving-sized) instant lemon or vanilla pudding mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons water (divided)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup limoncello (lemon-flavored liqueur, divided)
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds (lightly toasted)

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Preheat the oven to 325 F.

  3. Grease and flour a 12-cup Bundt cake pan.

  4. Combine the cake and pudding mixes with the eggs, 1/2 cup water, oil (or melted butter) and 1/2 cup limoncello. Mix the ingredients with an electric mixer for at least 2 minutes. Carefully pour into the prepared pan.

  5. Bake the cake for 1 hour. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 20 minutes. Remove the cake from the pan to complete cooling on a wire rack.

  6. Once the cake is completely cool, move it to a serving plate. Use a meat fork, or a kabob skewer to poke holes all over the cake.

  7. In a small saucepan, melt the butter with the remaining water and sugar. Bring the butter mixture to a boil and boil it for 5 minutes. Remove your pot from the heat and stir in the remaining limoncello.

  8. Carefully pour the glaze over the top of the cake. If necessary, use a pastry brush to brush on any of the glaze overflow. Immediately sprinkle almonds on top of the cake.

  9. Store the Limoncello Bundt Cake in an airtight container.

  10. Serve and enjoy!
