I’ve always been a big fan of lemon recipes. I’ve made Lemon Burst Cake Mix Cookies, Lemon Filled Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream, Lemon Blueberry Bread Pudding and Lemon Raspberry Coffee Cake just to name a few. My family has made this Lemon Pudding Pound Cake for years an it has always remained at the top luscious lemon desserts list

I’m pretty sure it was one of the first desserts I made while growing up. It’s that easy! I think we originally found the recipe on the box of cake mix.  It was a tradition for many years to bring this to every get together.

This is not a pudding filled cake, and it’s not quite as dense as a usual pound cake. Lemon pudding mix is added to the cake mix to give a light burst of lemon flavor and extra moistness to the cake.  I’ve always made our lemon pudding pound cake in a 9×13 cake pan, but I’m sure you could make it look pretty in a bunt pan as well.

If you can wait, cover the cake and let it sit over night in the refrigerator and pour the lemon glaze over the top before serving and the lemon flavor will come bursting out!!

I love this cake cold, so I store it covered in the refrigerator, but you can certainly keep it covered on the counter as well.

Grab your aprons…………this is a super easy cake recipe!

Lemon Pudding Pound Cake

Every bite of this Lemon Pudding Pound Cake is bursting with lemony goodness.

Ingredients:

Lemon {Pudding} Pound Cake
  • 1 box Lemon Instant Pudding mix (4 serving size)
  • 1 box Yellow Cake Mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup oil
Lemon Glaze
  • 2-3 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350° F . Grease and flour 9×13 cake pan.
  2. Place pudding mix, cake mix, eggs, water and oil in large mixing bowl.  Using an electric mixer, beat on low for 1 minute. Using a rubber spatula, scrape down sides of bowl and beat for another minute on medium high.
  3. Pour cake batter into prepared pan, and bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of cake comes out clean.  Cool completely on wire rack.
  4. Once cake has cooled, in a small bowl whisk lemon juice and powdered sugar until smooth. Note: If the glaze is too runny, add more powdered sugar. On the other hand, if it is too thick, add a little bit more lemon juice. You want a consistency similar to syrup: will coat the back of a spoon but slide off easily.
  5. Drizzle lemon glaze over cake.
  6. Serve cake room temperature or chilled.  I prefer this cake cold, so I store it in the refrigerator.
