Lemon Cake

I took this cake to my dad’s once for dinner. When I got there he said “oh I don’t like lemon cake”. I said well you have to try this, he really didn’t want to but eventually he did. He took a bite and said wow this is REALLY GOOD. Now he requests that I make this cake. 

Lemon is kind of hard for me I either love it or hate it. This cake has the perfect amount of lemon for me and is so soft. The frosting is so good, my husband always wants me to make lots of extra frosting for the cake because he loves it so much. 

This recipe does use a box of cake mix. Which I’ll be honest there are only a few recipes I will use the boxed cake for. I prefer to have things made from scratch, but this cake is so good. 

Lemon Cake


1 package white cake mix

1 small box instant lemon pudding

3/4 cup oil

1 cup sprite

3 eggs

2 cups powdered sugar

4 tablespoons lemon juice


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease bundt pan. Combine white cake mix, pudding, oil, sprite, and eggs, in a large bowl, with a mixer. Once combined pour into the greased bundt pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes.

When cake is still slightly warm (if it’s too warm the cake will not come out completely), turn pan over onto a serving plate. Try to separate the cake from the pan before turning it over, so that the cake doesn’t tear while flipping the pan over.

Combine powdered sugar and lemon juice for icing and drizzle over the top of the cake. The frosting will drip down the sides of the cake.
