Recipe Notes

-If you don't want to make the lemon sour cream sauce, you could top this cake with powdered sugar or a cream cheese frosting as well. 

-The white chocolate chips are optional, but I love the added sweetness it gives this bundt cake. 

-You could use a yellow cake mix in place of the lemon. It won't be as strong of a lemon flavor though.
