  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest

  • 1 Bundt cake pan

  1. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F.

  5. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating until just combined after each addition.
  6. Fold in the flour and salt mixture in 2 batches, mixing after each addition until well combined. Be careful not to over mix.
  7. Spoon the batter into the bundt pan and bake for 45 to 55 minutes, or until a skewer poked into the cake comes out clean.
  8. Cover the pan loosely with aluminum foil if the crust browns too quickly.
