Remember a while back I said I had a new recipe to share? Well, here it is!

I love lemon in Spring!  Lemon cookies...lemonade...lemon anything.  Each of the seasons has a certain flavor to me, and for Spring it is definitely lemon.  I baked two loaves of my Lemon Pound Cake earlier today and remembered I had promised to post this recipe.  I might be slow but I eventually follow through.  

This is the most amazing pound cake I have ever tasted!  If you try it once I guarantee you will want to make it again and again!  Sooooo delish!
  • 1 box Yellow Cake mix
  • 3.4 ounce instant (or cook&serve) lemon pudding 
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 6 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray two loaf pans with cooking spray.  Combine all ingredients (in any order) in large bowl and mix for 1 1/2 minutes.

Divide batter between two loaf pans.

 Bake 45 - 55 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.

My little kitchen helper.
 Let cool for 15 minutes before removing loaves from pans.

For icing:

  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons lemon juice
Place powdered sugar into large bowl.

Stir in lemon juice until smooth and thick.

Drizzle icing over cakes and let set for 20 minutes for a firm icing.  

The tray I made to take to Sunday School in the morning (if I can keep the men out of it tonight).
Lemon Pound Cake + hot cup of coffee = a little taste of heaven.  :)


  1. This looks SO good! Printing now :)


    1. You are going to love it! I'm starting to doubt that I will be taking my tray to Sunday School. My sixteen year old son keeps asking. :)

  2. Wowzers. That looks yummy. I will have to try that - when I have somewhere to take it:) I made your Mt.Dew cake this week for company and a friend so the lemon thang must be in the air. Love you.

  3. Morgan's most favorite thing to eat is lemon anything. I'll have to do this especially for her. Looks great!!

    1. Yes, definitely make it for her. It's one of my favorites and it's very easy to make.

  4. Yummy! I love lemon anything, too!

  5. Is there any difference using the cook& serve pudding with the quality of the cake? This sounds great and I want to try. I LOVE LEMON ANYTHING!!!

    1. Using the cook and serve pudding shouldn't make any difference. Either one is fine. You are going to love this recipe! Super yummy!! :)
