"I love to experiment with lighter recipes," relates Rosalie Buyce of Winter Haven, Florida. "I was pleased to come up with this moist lemon cake. A dollop of whipped topping gives the final touch to each sunny square."
"My mother baked this light moist treat when I was a child," shares Missy Andrews of Rice, Washington. "I loved it as much then as my children do now." Boxed cake and pudding mixes make this delightful dessert simple, and at a mere 22 cents a piece, it's frugal as well.
Whenever I serve these lovely bite-size glazed cakes, they get rave reviews...and I get requests for the recipe. Lemon and cream cheese make for a winning combination.—Charlene Crump, Montgomery, Alabama
Bursting with lemony zing, these cupcakes don't require frosting. In fact, my family prefers the crunchy sugar-and-spice topping. A dear friend shared the recipe with me, and it has long been in demand at our house. —Janice Porter, Platte, South Dakota
I like to bake this lovely three-layer cake instead of a more traditional pie for Thanksgiving. It has that tangy Florida citrus flavor and isn't any more difficult to make than a two-layer cake. —Norma Poole, Auburndale, Florida
