Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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 followed the recipe as is minus the lemon extract and poppy seeds. However, upon removing the cake from the oven, it began to deflate. Once cooled it was a third of the height of a normal bundt. Very strange. I couldn't serve to my guests. My husband and I only got through 2 slice before we decided it wasn't worth the calories to eat the rest. I probably won't try to doctor a boxed cake again.
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.
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
It disappeared at a potluck and I tried a slice - very lemony and delicious. I made it in a tube pan and poured a lemon glaze over top (melted butter, icing sugar, lemon juice, a bit of zest). Generally I don't use mixes but this cake is a keeper.
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.
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 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
