Cake mix cakes usually don't impress me, but this one is tasty! I didn't have lemon yogurt so I used part vanilla yogurt and part sour cream. I also used orange juice for the water. I grated a little lemon peel as well into the batter. After it cooled, I mixed fresh lemon juice, brown sugar, honey and a little milk and poked holes into the cake and drizzled the glaze over top. Definitely a keeper! Michelle from Belmont, Michigan

I added lemon zest to the batter, but still wasn't as lemony as I was looking for. Also, was looking for a denser cake, while this one is pretty light. I'll keep looking, but if you're looking for a slight lemon taste and a light cake give this one a try.

This was very easy, and very good. I made a lemon glaze for the cake by combining lemon peel, lemon juice and powdered sugar until I obtained my desired amount and consistency. A VERY tasty dessert!

This was very good. It was so moist and flavorful! I would recommend this to anyone!

Very good! Very moist, to the point of being nearly gooey. I made the glaze someone else suggested, with powdered sugar, lemon juice, and lemon peel grated--but this recipe really doesn't require any topping. I used plain yogurt and doubled the lemon juice. Thanks! this is a keeper for sure.

This recipe is extremely easy and fast. Make sure it cools completely in the pan or transferral to a cake plate can be a mess. (my mistake) I also made a little frosting for the top which gave it a delicious and beautiful finish. I'd love to try it making my own yellow cake, but the store brand was just fine.

Yummy and very moist! I made my own drizzle of confectioners sugar, milk, and left over lemon yogurt. Thanks for the great treat!
