"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.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 31, 2014

I was looking for a change from chocolate desserts and am so glad I came across this recipe. This cake is light and delicious - perfect for a summertime dessert. I used diet lemon-lime soda as that is what we had on hand. The final piece of cake in the pan was eaten five days after baking and was still wonderfully moist. We had extra icing on our cake due to the fact that I didn't measure when adding the powdered sugar and ended up needing to stir in additional lemon juice. So, so good!

I make this cake frequently, and there are never leftovers! I've shared this recipe with friends, and they, too, always get excellent feedback. I've made it with lemon cake mix for an extra lemon flavor. I've made it with diet soda, to reduce calories. There used to be a sugar-free instant lemon pudding, but I haven't found it in a long time. One of my favorite recipes. Works well as a breakfast cake too!

I would love to make this recipe it sounds so good but, is there something that I can substitute for the lemon-lime soda?

For the last 3 years, one of my co-workers has asked that I make this for him for his "birthday dessert". Although, not low fat, this is a very good recipe for those special occasions!

My daughter made this for Thanksgiving this past year, it was so delightful that she made It again. The first one she made she used essential oils in the icing, OMG, it was awesome.
