Glazed Lemon Cake Recipe

Glazed Lemon Cake Recipe

"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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package white cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant lemon pudding mix
  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup lemon-lime soda
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mix, oil and eggs; beat on low speed or 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Gradually beat in soda just until blended.
  • 2. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  • 3. In a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar and lemon juice until smooth; carefully spread over warm cake. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 12 servings.
