I made this recipe for the adults at my daughter's Birthday party, and it was a hit. Have since made it again. It hits the spot on a hot day, nice and light.

This cake was easy, very delicious and we all loved it! The only thing I did different was that I used lemon pudding instead of vanilla. Can't wait to make it again!
