Nothing says Spring and Summer like a lemon dessert! Just the smell of lemon adds a spring to my step and puts me in a good mood.
A few weeks ago I shared the wonderful Meyer Lemon Pie I
devoured made for my family. Today I’m sharing a no-frills, no-fuss lemon sheet cake that is perfectly lemony. This lemon sheet cake is truly something special and it has nothing to do with the fact it starts with a box cake mix.
Some bakers consider sheet cakes to be a lazy cake. Sure there are no fancy layers or decorations, but what’s wrong with simple? And, a sheet cake is perfect for feeding a crowd at pot-lucks, birthday parties, office parties or basically anywhere you need dessert for crowd of any size.
A sheet cake requires an 18×13 inch half sheet pan. If you don’t already have a rimmed half sheet pan, you’ll want to get one or two. I use mine for baking cookies, oven baked buffalo ranch chicken, roasting vegetables and more! You’ll wonder how you ever lived without one.

This is not a “whoa, HELLO lemon” kind of cake. The cake its self it not super lemony, thanks to the French vanilla cake mix. But the lemon pudding in the mix definitely makes it a “hey, it’s lemon!” kind of cake.
The dreamy lemon spiked cream cheese makes the frosting a little zippy. If you want more punch of lemon, you can use a lemon cake mix instead of vanilla. It will kick that lemon flavor up several notches.
I like to call this a happy yellow sunshine cake 😉
There is just enough frosting to get the creamy tangy sweetness in every bite, but not too much to take away from the moist cake underneath. All 24-36 pieces have the perfect cake to frosting ratio and are a slice of pure lemon bliss!
