Fluted Lemon Cake Recipe

Fluted Lemon Cake Recipe

My great-grandmother used to make this cake, which has been a family favorite for years. You won’t believe it starts with a cake mix! Lemon pudding and apricot nectar add a tanginess and moistness. It’s delicious plain or served with ice cream or whipped cream.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant lemon pudding mix

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • LEMON GLAZE:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
