Lemon Cake with Lemon Glaze

This is a super lemony, super yummy, super moist, super tangy cake for summer; one that would be a hit for your Labor Day weekend.

I found this on Facebook, but once I started following the directions, I realized they were a little “off.” It took me a bit to get it all straight, but I finally did, so I’m posting it here not just for you, but for ME as well!

The lady’s name of the original post for this cake is, Gabriele Lanham. You can follow her on FB here. How they are “skinny” eating THIS, I have no idea, but it’s certainly NOT low calorie.

Without further ado… I present the first “refreshing” cake.

Ingredients (for cake):

1 box- Lemon Cake Mix (I used Duncan Hines)

1 cup- buttermilk

1- 3 ounce box of lemon pudding (instant)

3 – eggs

1 cup- water

1/3 cup- lemon juice

Directions (for cake):

In medium bowl, mix dry ingredients; cake mix and pudding.

In smaller bowl, add your wet ingredients; buttermilk, eggs, water, lemon.

Whisk wet ingredients till combined well. Add dry ingredients slowly in increments till blended smooth. (I used a hand mixer to get it all blended well.)

Pour into a greased 9X12 pan and bake at 350 degrees for the amount of time the box calls for for the 9×12 size. (I think mine was 40-some minutes?)

Cake should spring back. (Note: A toothpick will not come out clean on this cake because of how moist it is.)

While cake is baking, make your icing in a medium sized bowl.

Ingredients (for glaze):

4 cups – confectioner’s sugar

1/3 cup- lemon juice

3 Tbsp. – Oil

3 Tbsp.-  Water

Directions (for glaze):

Blend all ingredients thoroughly and pour over cake when it’s cooled. Glaze will soak through cake and make it even more moist.

Enjoy this yummy cake warm or cold.

Happy Labor Day!
