I love serving this moist, delicious cake on the weekends when breakfast is late enough to be brunch. Serve it with a dollop of whipped cream or alongside seasonal fruits. The lemon glaze adds an extra layer of sophistication to this cake, so feel free to serve it at your fanciest party! I make this cake in a cast iron bundt pan, which really makes it beautiful, but a regular bundt pan will work just as well.
