Moist, refreshing and lemon-flavored, this sunshiny Bundt cake just couldn’t be much quicker to put together! It’s a summer favorite with Mechanicsville, Virginia reader Vicki Boyd, who sometimes substitutes orange cake mix and a can of orange Crush soda for a flavorful variation. —Vicki Boyd, Mechanicsville, Virginia

I meant to say I used just the oil called for in this recipe! It is exasperating to me that I make these typos! DELowenstein

I tried this recipe for the first time tonight! I used a package of lemon instant

pudding in this cake and I also added 2 Tbsp. lemon extract and instead of Mountain Dew soda, I used 7-up! I had enough 7-Up for another cake, so I used

a Super Moist Butter Cake recipe, but I used jus the oil as called for & I put a twist on the cake by using 1 Tbsp. lemon extract

and 1 Tbsp. rum extract! This recipe really sounded delicious and I was eager to put

my new Recipes Across America to use!

Thank you, Vicki Boyd, for this recipe!

I made this cake for the 1st time with the following changes: yellow cake & instant lemon pudding. OMG! I have never made an easier cake or ate one so moist and delicious. Instead of powdered sugar & made the glaze instead.

This has become our family's birthday cake recipe! I use a golden butter cake mix and put carmel icing on it. There are never any left over crumbs! It's a great basic recipe to experiment with different cake mix flavors and icings.
