1 (18.25 ounce) package
yellow cake mix
instant lemon pudding mix
I read all of the previous reviews and made changes accordingly. I used the entire package of lemon pudding mix, made sure that the cake mix wasn't the pudding kind, omitted the applesauce, added lemon juice and lemon flavoring and reduced fat sour cream. Baked it for 45 minutes. Delicious! Thanks!!
This was not the easiest pound cake to make. It was way too thick....so thick my blender got hot and went out on me. However, it was a good tasting cake. If you have to beat by hand...good luck you will be beating all day/night.
This was excellent. I also used the whole package of pudding mix and added 1/2 cup of blueberries to the mixture as I poured it into the pan. After the cake cooled I added whipped topping and sprinkled another 1/2 cup of blueberries on top. Looked and tasted wonderful. I highly recommend this.
Simple, quick, easy and moist describes this great cake recipe. I needed a second cake for an outing, so I made one according to the recipe and one with 2T lemon juice, 2t lemon zest and one cup of sour cream (leaving out the applesauce). My family preferred the texture and taste of the second cake, but that's only because we are lemon fans; but the first cake was really very good also. Thanks for sharing, Sara.
This was the easiest Lemony Pound Cake ever. I went a step further and used a lemon cake mix instead of yellow cake mix and served it with Lemon Icebox Pie Ice Cream...it really kicked it off and the family raved over it. Thanks.
This was so easy, I too changed it up a bit. I used a lemon cake mix w/o pudding and used the whole box of pudding. I used 1/4 C of lemon juice instead of water and sour cream. Added a lemon glaze. Wonderful!!!!
This cake turned out wonderful. I took the others advice and skipped the applesauce and used sour cream. I just winged it and it turned out moist and a glaze of confectioners sugar and lemon juice was literally the "icing on the cake"!
This was great, I'm 9 months pregnant and craved something lemony... I did as another reviewer suggested and didn't add the applesauce but lemon juice, zest and sour cream... except I added a lot of juice and zest!!! It was fantastic, can't wait to make it again, just need another burst of energy! Thanks Sarah!
