Lemon Cake

Lemon Bundt Cake

This lemon cake is full of flavor and very easy to make. It may be made as a regular cake or cupcake, but I recently received a mini-bundt cake pan and had to try it out.  Baking times vary.

Lemon Glaze Ingredients:

3/4 cup Powdered Sugar (sifted), 2 tablespoons FRESH Lemon Juice.

Lemon CakePreheat oven for 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix together the Yellow Cake Mix and the Jell-O.  Add the Vegetable Oil and the Eggs. Slowly add the Hot Water. Mix the batter on low-medium speed for 2 minutes.

Grease the cake pan with cooking spray and fill it 3/4 full. The cake will expand some when baked. Bake until the cake is light brown and do the toothpick test.  Baking times are: mini bundt cake for 25 minutes, cupcakes for 17-19 minutes, full bundt cake 38-40 minutes. Baking times vary. I highly recommend checking it 2 minutes prior to estimated times to see how it is doing.

Make the glaze by mixing the Powdered Sugar with the Fresh Lemon Juice. Slowly pour a spoon full on top of the cake. Do not saturate it!

This cake is best served warm or at room temperature. It is both sweet and tart and is a great treat for winter or summer.
