- Then mix in the eggs, doing so thoroughly.
- Add the dry ingredients, rotating with the 1 cup of buttermilk and combine with care, noting how the ingredients make a "perfect" batter.
- Put your lemon zest and lemon juice in last.
- Mix well.
- Pour into the Bundt pan and pop in the oven, baking for approx. 45-50 minutes or tested done
- Perform the "toothpick" test to make certain it is done but don't overcook !!
- Allow to cool on a rack.
- Run a knife around cake in pan for easier removal.
- BUT before poking holes in it after flipping cake out, turn it right-side up again (carefully).
- THEN with a long-tined fork, poke holes in it once on serving plate
- Then spread lemon glaze all over it.
