This past autumn I became the proud owner of my very first bundt pan and began searching around for a great recipe to break it in. As it turned out, I didn't have to go much further than one of my favorite bloggers, Anuradha from Baker Street. I've long been a fan of her tasty looking baked creations and have even tried a few of the recipes. And so, I made her fabulous chocolate pumpkin bundt and it kick-started my bundt baking adventures.
For the Streusel Topping:
1 Cup all purpose flour
1 stick unsalted butter, chilled and cut into 1" pieces
1/4 Cup light brown sugar
1/4 Cup sugar
Pinch of salt
Dash of cinnamon
Mix together the flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or fork until clumps form. Cover and refrigerate while you prepare the batter.
For the Cake:
2 Cups all purpose flour
1 Teaspoon salt
1 Teaspoon baking powder
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1 Stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 Cup sugar
3 - 4 Tablespoons lemon zest (about 5-6 lemons)
1 Teaspoon vanilla
1 Teaspoon lemon juice
1 Cup sour cream
To assemble the cake, spoon half the streusel into the bundt pan, pour half the batter over it, spoon in the remaining streusel and finish with the remaining batter. Bake for 50 - 55 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool thoroughly before turning it out of the pan and dust the top with powdered sugar. Makes approximately 10 servings.
