  • 8 ounces (226g) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 10-inch (25cm) bundt pan.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  5. Mix in the milk, lemon juice, and lemon zest until well combined.
  6. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just incorporated.
  7. In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
  8. Pour half of the cake batter into the prepared bundt pan. Spoon the cream cheese mixture on top of the batter, avoiding the sides of the pan.
  9. Pour the remaining cake batter over the cream cheese mixture.
  10. Use a knife or skewer to gently swirl the cream cheese mixture into the cake batter, creating a marbled effect.
  11. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  12. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  13. Once cooled, you can dust the cake with powdered sugar or drizzle it with a lemon glaze for added sweetness.
