Luscious Lemon Bundt Cake W/Lemony Cream Cheese Frosting

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by MustangMom

I found this recipe in the March ’06 Good Housekeeping Magazine and had to try it immediately! We all loved it! I made a few minor changes to the frosting: I used 4 cups sugar, 8 oz. cream cheese, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and I also added some grated lemon peel (maybe 1 tsp.) Both cake and frosting were deliciously lemony! :)

I have been searching for this recipe forever! I cut it out of the 3/06 GH magazine, made it a few times and lost the clipping! I've been so upset because it is the best cake ever. I'm 7 mos. pregnant now and craving this cake like crazy... thank god for google! Thank you so much for saving me!!
