Awhile ago, I had a piece of  Limoncello layer cake

at a local restaurant. {it had amazing frosting}

It was very good but I wanted a version

that was not so fussy.

Using an old fashioned rum cake recipe to base it on,

here is my version of  a Limoncello  bundt cake.

Please enjoy, let me know how you liked it,

and

till next time.

    Robin, I have a bottle of Limoncello in the freezer right now just wanting to be turned into a bundt cake with glaze! Yum, sounds so good.

    My best friend Susan (from Fort Worth who passed away from cancer last year) was married to Don. He is like a brother to me and he is coming in September to spend a week with us. I will be serving this cake when he is here. Thanks for posting it. with love, Bobbie
