This recipe was so easy and it's one of those recipes that every ingredient is usually on hand in your pantry. I followed the recipe exactly except I didn't add the poppy seeds, as they were optional. This cake would be excellent with fresh strawberries on top! Hummmm....
I made this lemon cake in two, round pans and iced it with a butter lemon frosting, and served it for a birthday celebration. I didn't have any lemon extract or poppy seeds, so omitted those ingredients, and added a little bit more lemon juice (freshly squeezed, of course!). It was fabulous and got rave reviews from everyone there. Moist, delicious, authentically lemony. I can't believe it doesn't have more reviews on it yet, but I was very impressed. Took very little time to assemble
Best lemon cake ever, though I added almost a half cup of water, drizzled fresh lemon juice in the top after making little holes with a toothpick, and iced it with powdered sugar mixed with lemon juice. Also added blueberries, optional.
Tried this for the first time today. I made it for a neighbor who had just lost his father. I followed the directions exactly and it looked and smelled yummy? I too, used to make the lemon bundt cake recipe on the side of the lemon cake mix. This should be much more "lemony"... Should also be more moist with the addition of sour cream, etc. As far as the different sizes in the cake mixes goes, I had never noticed (how observant of me) and have been continuing to make recipes that call for a mix with no ill effects. Thanks for, what looks to me, like it will be my new favorite lemon cake!!! I also sprinkled powdered sugar over the whole cake to make it look a little more special...
This is the best lemon bundt cake ever. I used to make the recipe on the side of the box of lemon cake. It's similar to this one in that you add lemon instant pudding; however it just was never lemony enough. The fresh lemon juice and zest really make this.
Served this with strawberries and vanilla ice cream - Fathers Day
This recipe sounds fantastic so I gave it 5 stars. However, I haven't tried making it. My reason is that it's no longer possible to find any brand of cake mix that weighs 18.25 oz., which means the amount of the other ingredients called for are going to be thrown off. Betty Crocker and Pillsbury mixes, that used to be 18.25 oz., are now 15.25 oz. Duncan Hines is now 16.5 oz.
I love lemon cake(lemon anything) and desired to find an easy recipe for a MOPS breakfast so I decided to try this and WOW!! this was DELICIOUS!!! Here are a few adjectives to describe: decadent, moist, flavorful and simple to make. I didn't make any changes(I make changes to recipes when they fail me) and this doesn't need any tweaking whatsoever. I actually have to say it's amazing and I went back for a second slice;) I received rave reviews and encouraged to make it for a bake sale. I hope you decide to try it
