The “Lemon Drizzle Bundt Cake,” from The European Cake Cookbook, by Tatyana Nesteruk, is my featured cake for this month’s Cake Slice Bakers. When life gives you lemons, make lemon curd!


I felt no anxiety about whisking this lemon curd. Just follow the steps and you won’t mess it up. Whisking it by hand until “thick and pale” is very satisfying.

Take your time to mix the batter until “creamy and smooth.”



I baked this cake for 50 minutes. The cake is moist and lemony, the curd is tart and sweet and rich (as expected). More than 1 cup of curd was leftover, for indulging each slice. This successful cake was easy and nice to eat.

Each month The Cake Slice Bakers are offered a selection of cakes from the current book we are baking through. This year it is The European Cake Cookbook by Tatyana Nesteruk. We each choose one cake to bake, and then on the 20th - never before - we all post about our cake on our blogs. There are a few rules that we follow, but the most important ones are to have fun and enjoy baking & eating cakes!

Follow our Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest pages where you can find all of our cakes, as well as inspiration for many other cakes. You can also click on the thumbnail pictures below to take you to each of our cakes. If you have a blog and are interested in joining The Cake Slice Bakers and baking along with us, please send an email to thecakeslicebakers at gmail dot com for more details.

The Cake Slice Bakers also have a new Facebook group called The Cake Slice Bakers and Friends. This group is perfect for those who do not have a blog but want to join in the fun and bake through this book.


December 2019 is the final month we will be baking from The European Cake Cookbook and our tradition is that we have free choice of any of the cakes in the book ~
