- Cut last 8 rolls and dip in butter and sugar zest mixture. Layer on top.
- If you have any sugar zest mixture left, sprinkle on top of rolls.
- Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until about one inch below the top
of the Bundt pan.
- Remove wrap and bake at 350 degrees F 40-50 minutes. Cover with foil last
20 minutes of baking to prevent over browning.
- Remove from oven and invert immediately onto serving platter.
- While Bundt is baking, prepare the topping. Combine lemon juice and sugar
in small sauce pan. Bring to a boil.
- In a separate bowl, whisk egg until well blended. While stirring the egg,
slowly add the hot lemon mixture to the egg so the egg does not cook. Pour the
mixture back into the sauce pan and bring back to a boil. Stir constantly until
mixture begins to thicken.
- Let cool and drizzle over warm Bundt.
