Instructions Checklist

    Advertisement
  • Grease and flour a 10-inch fluted tube pan (such as a Bundt®).

  • Beat lemon cake mix, lemon pudding mix, white sugar, eggs, 1 cup peach nectar, and vegetable oil in a bowl with electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes.

  • Pour batter into prepared cake pan.

  • Bake in preheated oven until top of cake springs back when lightly pressed and a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean, about 50 minutes.

  • Cool cake in the pan for 15 minutes before removing cake to finish cooling on rack.

  • Mix confectioners' sugar, 1/4 cup peach nectar, lemon juice, and lemon peel in a bowl to make a smooth frosting.

  • Place cake on a serving platter; poke holes in top of the cake with a fork. Pour frosting slowly over the cake, allowing frosting to soak into the holes and drizzle down the sides of the cake.

I made this today and we just had a piece of it. It is very moist and very tasty and the frosting/icing is the best part. Anyway, if you are looking for a very moist, peachy, lemony cake, this is perfect. I used a bunt pan and it was done in about 47 minutes. Thank you Acygan for putting this recipe up! Read More

I did swap peach nectar for lemon lime soda (I used diet Sun Drop), I used sugar-free lemon pudding mix and otherwise followed instructions / ingredients per the original. This cake is FANTASTIC!! Lemon-lime soda makes a great substitute if you don't have peach nectar around. I would recommend halving the glaze - I thought the 2 cups of powdered sugar concoction was too much - it puddled around the base and made the bottom a little soggy, and I had to keep pouring it back into the bowl and re-drizzling it over the top trying to use it all. The glaze is a great addition, but I think half would be perfect. Great recipe!! Read More

Great cake! Very moist and tasty. The addition of the peach flavor gives the cake an interesting flavor twist. I didn’t actually have peach nectar so I puréed some canned peaches. This was the only change I made. I will make it again. Read More

I actually split the batter and put 1/2 c lemon juice in one and 1/2 cup strawberry jam on the other then swirled them all around. It turned out super yummy! Read More
