Easy Peasy Lemon Pound Cake

Yummy Lemon Pound Cake. Today is Foody Friday, and this is my first post for this weekly event. So click on Foody Friday, here and see what everyone is cooking up!

This is hands down the best Lemon Pound Cake ever! My mom started this tradition in our family and everyone who has this cake raves about it. It is so easy and always turns out perfect.

The ingredients are shown below and the recipe you will find on the side of every Duncan Hines Lemon Cake mix box.

See the recipe on the side? I will list it at the end of this post. I only use about 1/2 of this container. After removing the amount I need I put it in a small microwavable bowl and nuke it for 5-10 seconds, stir it until even consistency and then pour slowly around the top of the cooled cake,

So here are the ingredients. The Lemon Pudding must be the Instant kind. If you forget what you need just refer to the Lemon Cake box, hey it's always gonna be in the store.

Here is the recipe.


1 Pkg. Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Lemon Supreme Cake Mix

1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) lemon instant pudding and pie mix

4 lg eggs

1 cup water

1/3 cup vegetable oil


1/2 cup Duncan hines creamy Home-style frosting (or Betty Crocker) I buy the lemon, but you could choose your favorite flavor too.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and Flour 10 inch Bundt or tube pan.

Combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, water and oil in large bowl.

Beat at medium speed with electric mixer for 2 minutes. Pour into pan.

Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 25 minutes. Invert onto heat resistant serving plate. Cool completely.

For Glaze, Heat frosting in small saucepan over medium heat stirring constantly until thin, or microwave on high for 10-15 seconds, Do not overheat. Drizzle over cake.

I am participating in Foody Friday today. I am so excited to have my first post on this weekly party.
