Ingredients:

2 3/4 cup flour

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

1 1/2 cups sugar

4 eggs, lightly beaten, room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup whole milk, room temperature

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 335 F, placing a rack in the bottom third of the oven.

Butter and flour your bundt pan, shaking out all excess flour and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.

Whisk or sift together, set aside.

In a stand mixer fit with the paddle attachment beat the butter until smooth, about 30 seconds.

Add the sugar and cream together with butter on medium high speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.

Gradually add the egg, beating thoroughly and scraping down the sides in between each addition.

Add the vanilla and beat just until incorporated, about 1 minute.

Add one-third of the flour mixture and beat on low speed until incorporated, then add half of the milk, beating again until incorporated.

Scrape down the sides in between each addition.2

Repeat with another third of the flour mixture, then the remainder of the milk, then the remainder of the flour.

Spoon batter into prepared bundt pan, filling each vessel about 3/4 the way full.

If you fil them too high, they will form little domes on the bottom and will not sit level, don't worry though they will still be damn cute.

Bake for 28-32 minutes (for the mini bundts), until brown around the edges.

Place pan on wire rack and allow to cool for 15 minutes.

You can then turn the bundts out onto the wire rack and cool completely before glazing.

Lime Glaze

The amounts of liquid to sugar will vary based on how thick you would like your glaze.

I made mine very thick, so that it would dry and form a shell almost, so that it would stand up to stacking.

If you want yours thinner and lighter, just up the liquid content a little until it reaches your desired consistency.2

1 cup powdered sugar

3 tablespoons lime juice (fresh squeezed if you are making 24 bundts, bottled if you are making 175 bundt.

Trust me on this one)

1 teaspoon lime zest

Combine all ingredients in small bowl and wisk or stir together until smooth.2

Dip the top of each cake into the glaze and set on a wire rack to dry for 1-2 hours.
