Instructions lemon olive oil bundt cake
For this recipe I used silicone mold Moments produced by Silikomart.
From this recipe you can prepare two bundt cakes using a silicone or classic pan with the volume of 1000 ml.
In a bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt. Add lemon zest and stir.
In a large bowl, combine eggs and sugar. Beat on medium speed with the electric mixer until foamy for about 3 minutes. Add olive oil, lemon juice and vanilla extract and beat again until incorporated.
Gradually add flour, alternating it with milk. Use the whisk or spoon to gently stir in the ingredients.
Spread your silicone molds with some oil. If you use a classic baking pan, grease it lightly and dust with flour. Divide the dough between the two prepared moulds and tap them lightly on the counter to eliminate any air bubbles.
Bake in a preheated static oven at 180 °C for 35 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave the cake in for another 10 minutes. You can also bake it until the toothpick inserted in the center of the cake is clean.

The cream cheese glaze and decoration
Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool before taking it out of the mould and cooling it completely.
At this point, prepare the glaze by vigorously mixing cream cheese with icing sugar. Add milk and mix again. Adjust with more liquid if necessary to obtain the glaze of the desired consistency. If the glaze has lumps, just pass it through a sieve.
Decorate the cold cake with the prepared glaze and add lot of fresh seasonal fruit. I used peaches, red currants and wild strawberries.
If you intend not to cover the cake with fruit and glaze, keep it at room temperature, otherwise keep it in the refrigerator.
