Strawberry Lemonade Cake Recipe

Show Some Love!

Every Now and again you see something that makes you taste it immediately and want to make/bake it asap. I recently saw a facebook post for a Strawberry Lemonade Cake that instantly I was like OMG, I need this in my life.

Well the photo was a post to someone’s personal page that just so happened to go viral and ended up in my news feed, and like most of us who post photos of the things we make at home, there was no recipe included.

So like any human being, I took to Google to find a recipe. I found tons, but there was something about the shape of that pan that put in my head how this was layered and baked. I never found the recipe that (was in my head) so I took what was in my head and through trial and error made a masterpiece.

Although not shown in the recipe, I did add a little strawberry puree over the lemon glaze, this cake was so moist and even more delicious. This is one you will for sure want to pin.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot to tell you where I got this cool bundt pan. I got it right at for only $8.99 shipped. If you make this Strawberry Lemonade Cake using my recipe, I would love for you to come back and tell me how you liked it. Even email me photos so I can post them to my Facebook Page.

How to you layer it to get the swirl effect?

It's the bundt ban that does that, there is a link in the post for where to buy it.

That's OK. I didn't add it because it wasn't in the directions to do so but they still enjoyed the cake. :) Now I know for next time.
