You may not like the word "moist" but it's the best way to describe this lemon bundt cake. The orange glaze takes it from delicious to divine.

* Next time I'm going to pour the glaze into the cake pan using the method from this Glazed Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt Cake (https://www.halfscratched.com/2013/04/glazed-lemon-poppy-seed-bundt-cake/) and see if more of the glaze makes it into the cake rather than the platter. It will be an adventure!
