Lemon Bundt Cake with Citrus Glaze

Y'all, I made my first Bundt cake {and it turned out pretty well}!  It was surprisingly difficult to find a recipe with actual lemon in it.  I kept finding ones with lemon flavored soda, lemon flavored pudding, lemon flavored cake mix <-- GROSS
Then I found this one.

The glaze compliments the cake nicely and makes it SO moist.  When I baked this, I initially ate some, gave half to the neighbors, and then sent my husband to work with the rest {so as not to tempt myself}.  Now, I see that was a mistake, and am seriously considering making another one tonight.

Directions (cake):

1) Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

2) In a food processor, blend together the vanilla, lemon juice, zest, and oil; mix together for about a minute. <-- I do this, because I can't stand chewing on bits of lemon zest, and want them broken down so I just get the delicious flavor.  If you enjoy the zest in all of its glory, skip this step.

3) In a mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Slowly mix in the milk and eggs.  Then, pour in the vanilla, juice, zest and oil.

4) Pour into a fluted pan {i.e. Bundt}.  Bake in the preheated oven for 70-75 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.  Allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes, and then run a paring knife along the sides of the cake, to loosen it.  Cover the cake pan with a plate and flip the cake out onto it.

In the 10 minutes that you allow your cake to cool, you can whip up the glaze!

Ingredients (glaze):

1 tablespoon lemon zest {about 2 lemons}
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 lemon - juiced
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup white sugar
1 1/3 cup powdered sugar


Directions (glaze):

1) In a food processor, blend together the zest, vanilla, lemon juice, milk, orange juice, and sugars; mix together for about a minute. <-- Again, I do this because I can't stand chewing on bits of lemon zest, and want them broken down so I just get the delicious flavor.  If you enjoy the zest in all of its glory, skip this step.

2) In a small saucepan over medium heat, stir together the zest, vanilla, lemon juice, milk, orange juice, and sugars.  Whisk until it comes to a foamy boil, cooking for about a minute more, and then remove from heat.  Drizzle mixture over warm cake and enjoy!
