Cake with Lemon Sauce

Refreshing Cake with Lemon Sauce completes the delightful dinner. "This is a family favorite on hot summer nights," notes Claire Dion from Canterbury, Connecticut. Cream cheese, milk and pudding mix are all that's needed for the sunny sauce drizzled over prepared pound cake and topped with a few berries.

    Didn't like it. Not near enough lemon flavor.

    This was very tasty but it does need to be thinned out a little with some more milk so that it can be drizzled over the cake...

    This has a very light feeling to it. Perfect summer dessert. Slight lemon flavor. I personally would like slightly more lemon flavor. I am going to add more milk next time I make it as the sauce is a little thicker than I would prefer. Overall, though, it is very delicious and am making it again today.
