A great summer treat is lemonade. With this recipe, you can "Have your cake and eat it too". . . Lemon Aide Cake, that is. This is the treat for the "Lemon Loves".

Ingredients

Cake: Topping:

Directions

Prepare a Bundt Pan by spraying generously with (non-flavored) cooking oil spray. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Using an electric mixer, mix all cake ingredients in a large bowl for 3 minutes. Pour batter evenly into bundt pan. Tap pan to remove air bubbles. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until cake springs back when gently pressed with finger.

Ad

While cake is baking, pour lemon juice into a medium size bowl and add the cup of sugar. Stir until as much of the sugar is dissolved as possible. Set aside and stir about every 15 minutes until cake is baked.

Remove cake from oven. Using a knife, poke deep holes in cake close together. Pour 1/2 of the lemon juice mix over cake. Using knife, gently lift cake from sides of pan and pour a small amount of juice into side. Continue around cake. Let cake set until the juice is absorbed. DO NOT allow cake to cool completely. (Store cake in an air tight cake box.)

Flip cake onto a large dinner plate or cake plate. Serve with whipped topping or vanilla ice cream. Garnish with twisted lemon slices and mint leaves. Lemon Aide Cake is a hit for any gathering and makes a great gift.

Source: My father loved lemons. He didn't like cake. He said he wished he had a lemon aide cake. I loved to bake and knew how to make a pound cake with cake mix. I added lemon Jello mix to the batter. I took him literally and used sweetened frozen lemon juice to soak into the cake. I submitted this recipe to Betty Crocker in the early 60's and was published. This recipe has won many rewards. I am now sharing it with you. ENJOY

I took this recipe from the internet and made it yesterday. Served it to friends with the lemon sauce, and we all agreed that it's delicious! Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Butter and flour a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the eggs, sugar, and salt; beat until thick and a light lemon color.

I need an easy lemon birthday cake recipe using a box mix, but I am not sure just using a cake mix will make it lemony enough. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to alter it to give it more of a lemon flavor?

Hello, try adding a bit of lemon koolaid powder, I don't remember how much so you'll need to experiment in increments. Also please add one pkg of vanilla pudding and one pkg of dream whip powder, you'll be enthralled at how moist it is.

I do this with every lemon cake mix for extra lemon....use lemon flavoring and if you are like me taste the mix and it is usually milder before cooked.

Take a fine grater (teensy little holes, not like you use for cheese or carrots) and grate off the yellow part of a fresh lemon's peel--not the white part of the peel as it's too bitter. Add that yellow lemon zest to the mix. THEN, cut the lemon itself in half, squeeze out as much juice as you can, and use that juice for the liquid in the recipe (add water to make the total amount if there's not enough juice).

For years now I have used the dream cake recipe on the back of the Dream Whip box to make lemon cake. You can use any flavor cake mix with this recipe, but it is wonderful with lemon cake mix from Duncan Hines and lemon pudding mix. It is very easy. I make it in a jelly-roll pan (10x15). I'm asked for the recipe over and over again and have to admit it came from the back of the box!

The Lemonade Party cake on the back of the Betty Crocker lemon cake mix is excellent. (recipe is also online). I don't use their tub frosting, but make my own instead. Hubby says it "tastes like summer" anytime.

LEMON FROSTING

1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter or margarine, softened

1 box (16 ounces) confectioners sugar (about 3 3/4 cups)

1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

If it's too thick, pour in some milk a little at a time. Beat with mixer until smooth. Frosts 9x13- cake or 24 cupcakes.

A lot of your lemon flavor comes from the frosting. Make a classic easy Lemon Jello Cake and top with a powdered sugar frosting: 1/2 box powdered sugar, 1/2 bottle lemon flavoring, and 1/4 cup orange juice. Always gets lots of compliments.

You could fill between the layers with lemon curd, which Kroger's carries. It's with the jams and jellies, in my store on the top shelf. A clerk would be glad to find it for you. There are also recipes online to make it; it isn't complicated. Also, if the cake mix calls for liquid, use lemonade. Hope this helps!

One of the tastiest lemon pound cake recipes I have uses fresh lemon zest. I would use at least the zest of 3 lemons for a 2 layer box cake mix.
