I LOVE anything Lemon -and when I ran across this delightful bundt-I couldn't resist keeping it here! Found in FIRST magazine! ** time does not include cooling time

I LOVE THIS CAKE! All those lemony ingredients, along with the poppy seed (not to mention the nuts & berries!) make this AN OUTSTANDING DESSERT! I made it just for 2 of us then my other half took much of it to work, but another time I'm making it either for guests or to keep right here! A real winner of a recipe! Thanks for sharing!
