The theme for Sunday Supper this week is Hometown Foods, hosted by Coleen of The Redhead Baker. As I was coming up with my hometown recipe, I had visions of recipes for Juicy Lucys, wild rice or a healthier tater tot casserole dancing in my head.  But as I was doing this recipe during my morning commute, I drove past a large sign that inspired me…

Minnesota is where Bundt cake pans originated!  Clearly this was a sign (a good one, I might add! oh, and pardon the pun 🙂 ).  So while those other tasty Minnesota grown recipes may appear on the blog in some form in the future, I had to represent by making a Bundt cake for my hometown recipe.

This Lemon Buttermilk Bundt Cake is moist, full of lemon-y goodness and very easy to make.  The shape of a Bundt cake is so pretty, that very little decorating is required.  Before serving, I dusted the top with a little powdered sugar, and the simplicity was perfect.  This cake can be enjoyed as a delicious breakfast coffee cake or served with a scoop of ice cream for a light dessert.  To take it up a notch, sometimes I drizzle a simple lemon-buttermilk glaze over the top of the cake.  As beautiful as it is delicious, this Lemon Buttermilk Bundt Cake is sure to please!
