Seasonal Potluck: Pink Lemonade Bundt Cake

I had to make a bundt to bring with me to Seattle for Jenny’s birthday. I saw this one on Pinterest recently, and thought she’d really love the pink motif. Sure there’s no “real” lemon in it, but I thought it could pass for Seasonal Potluck anyway. Its definitely VERY pink on the inside, but the outside is not as pink as the original inspiration. My lemon cake mix+red food coloring made for kind of an orangey color. To compensate, I added more food coloring to boost the pink color.

I’m writing this post on Thursday before I leave, and am hoping this cake will travel well since it doesn’t ¬†have any real “frosting”. I read an article recently where someone had their cupcakes confiscated because frosting is considered a “liquid”. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping for the best! I’ll be sure to update you with a photo of the bright pink inside if and when we make it to Seattle. Have a fantastic weekend everyone!

Pink Lemonade Bundt Cake recipe from Sweet Baby Aprons 

1 (18.25 ounce) package lemon cake mix
1 (3 ounce) package instant lemon pudding mix
4 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup pink lemonade concentrate
4 drops pink or red food color, optional

Glaze:
1 cup frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed
1/2 cup white sugar



1) Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour one 10-inch tube pan or
bundt pan.

2) Combine the cake mix, lemon pudding mix, eggs, vegetable oil, 1/2
cup lemon concentrate and the milk. Mix until smooth. Pour the batter
into the prepared pan.

3) Bake at 350 for 50 minutes to 1 hour. If your oven runs hot be
sure to adjust accordingly!

LEMONADE GLAZE:

thoroughly and pour over still warm cake.

Remove from oven and prick cake all over with a fork. Immediately
pour lemonade glaze over top of cake.

Let cake stand in pan until almost cool.
