3- Bake the lemon Bundt cake for about 35 minutes.


1- While the cake is baking, prepare a lemon juice syrup to soak it when it comes out of the oven.

2- Squeeze the lemon you have zested into the cake batter.

3- Mix the juice with about 40 g of powdered sugar, whisking well to dissolve any lumps. Set aside.

4- When you take the bundt cake out of the oven, let it cool down for a few minutes before unmolding it, then put it back in its mold immediately to soak it without dripping.

Prick the bottom of the cake in several places with a wooden pick and gently pour the lemon juice over the cake until it has all been absorbed.

1- For the glaze, mix the remaining 60 g of powdered sugar with a teaspoon of olive oil and the juice of about half a lemon.

2- Use the texture of the mixture to measure out the lemon juice. The glaze should be white and thick.
