This glazed lemon cake, has its story. I really wanted to use my new mould Nordic Ware My sister had bought it for me. It is a very original mold because it is square while it is still a bundt, and that is not very common.

My sister's favorite cake is the lemon, cake so I decided that I would frist use my mould with a glazed lemon cake for her, and this is the result of a soft and delicious cake. It has sour cream. This cream is used in place of yogurt because its sour gives it a very rich flavor to the cake as well as a very soft texture. If you cannot find it, you can replace it with a mixture of Greek yogurt (full fat no light) with butter and lemon juice: 1 part of melted butter at room temperature mixed with 3 parts of Greek yogurt. and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice In the case of this recipe, use a cup of sour cream are 300 ml, so we would put 225 g Greek yoghurt and 75 g butter melted at room temperature and 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice.

You will also love this recipe for the lemon icing that is acid and sweet at the same time ( I would eat full tablespoonfuls instead of pouring it on the cake whenever I prepare this recipe).
