"This was adapted form an episode of "America's Test Kitchen". I watched them make this cake and went right out and bought the stuff I didn't already have and made this cake. This was by the far the BEST lemon bundt cake I've ever made. The problem alot of times is when we make something with lemons it usually cooks out the flavor of the lemon by the end of the baking time. They tested several ways of making lemon bundt cakes and this recipe is it! The buttermilk is the secret to this great cake, and not to mention this is really easy to make. (*note: you will need 5-6 tablespoons of lemon juice total for this recipe.)"

"Anything from America's Test Kitchen has already been tested every which way to perfection. This was wonderful!! The lemon glaze provides has a sweet-sour zing and then the cake has a buttery warm flavor. The only complaint is that I used all my mixing bowls; there have to be a couple steps that can be consolidated. Thanks for posting!"
"not Quite sure what happened????my lemon bunt cake was a REAL failure!! I am not a new baker, nor cook!! have baked for years, with success , but this one was awful! I even went out to purchase fresh buttermilk. But the cake came out heavy and uninteresting ! I made everyone eat a piece For Easter brunch! No comments , everyone ate in silence , all felt sorry for my failure!! hahaahaAll that work !! yuck and it even stuck to my well prepared nonstick bunt pan!!! This is not a keeper recipe for me!! Michelle"
"Very fresh and full of lemon flavour!!! Absolutely intense with flavour! I was asked for the recipe from a distant Cousin, who heard how good it was. This cake won't disappoint, it was good."
"This is so, so good! It was moist and not too dense at all. I am a beginner in the kitchen, but I do know my desserts! YUM!! Thanks for sharing!"
"This was good, but not everyone enjoyed it. Seemed a little too dense and not quite lemony or sweet enough...but still good and it was wolfed down on Easter!"
