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
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat the oven to 325 F.
Grease and flour a 12-cup Bundt cake pan.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Store the Limoncello Bundt Cake in an airtight container.
Serve and enjoy!
