Spring Crafts

Even if the weather doesn’t want to act like it … spring is here! And maybe if we start welcoming spring into our homes with fun crafts and décor, Mother Nature will get the memo.

Here with some fun ways to get your house feeling all ready for spring we have Donna Erickson! Her website.

One-Step Lemon Bundt Cake by Donna Erickson

Ingredients:
2 1/4 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup soft unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup sour cream, at room temperature
3 eggs, at room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest

To Glaze:
1 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour one Bundt cake pan. Or, spray with non-stick baking spray with flour.
2. Put all of the cake ingredients into a mixer bowl and blend at low speed for about 1 minute. Beat an additional 3 minutes at medium speed. It will be light-yellow and creamy.
3. Pour into prepared pan.
4. Bake 55-60 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
5. Cool the cake upright on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove from the pan and cool completely before glazing.
6. To glaze, combine the confectioners’ sugar and lemon juice in a bowl, mixing with a whisk until smooth. Add more juice for a pourable consistency. Drizzle over the top of the cooled cake and let glaze dry.
