Be careful when buying your cake mix - if you get one that already has pudding in the mix it will take considerably longer to bake. The top will get quite brown, but cook until the batter no longer wiggles when you nudge the bundt pan.
I took this to a party and everyone raved about it! I changed the baking temperature to 350 F and added a lemon glaze (2 TBS fresh lemon juice, 1 tsp grated lemon peel, and 2/3 cup sifted powdered sugar whisked together and drizzled over warm cake after it cooled 10 minutes and I removed it from the bundt pan.
I've never rated a recipe a "1" before but this deserves it: it's nasty. I LOVE lemon and was so excited to make this cake from all the great reviews. Needless to say I was extremely disappointed by the recipe. I'm blaming it all on the soda. I used Sierra Mist but I doubt Sprite or 7 Up would have created a better result. The whole cake had this weird chemical taste... ugh like I said nasty. My advice is to modify "Lisa's Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake" recipe using lemon cake mix and pudding mix omitting the chocolate chips and adding a couple tablespoons of lemon juice. I did this the day after making this disgusting cake (because I was REALLY craving lemon cake) and it turned out simply delicious. No chemical weirdness MUCH moister than this cake because that recipe uses sour cream basically just a million trillion times better. I don't know how ya'll loved this so much but i STRONGLY recommend using that other recipe instead!
This cake got rave reviews especially for the fact that it is very moist. I added fresh raspberries around it and in the middle then made a lemon glaze which I poured over the whole thing then powdered sugar. It was very tasty I have never tasted a lemon cake I liked as well. If you like lemon cake you'll love this!
Since I used a yellow cake mix, I added some grated lemon zest and about 1/2 tsp. lemon extract to the batter. Even tho' it was very good, I thought it was a tad too oily and next time would reduce the oil to 1/2 c. I made a glaze of the juice from one lemon, and powdered sugar. Can't wait to try this recipe using a white or yellow cake mix, vanilla pudding, root beer and root beer extract!
This cake turned out moist and delicious because I read others opinions about a potentially chemical taste I became worried. When I did my toothpick test to see if it was ready the uncooked portion tasted chemically. I made 3 other different cakes for my party and never put this one w the others. two days later I figured I taste it before throwing it out. The cake was delicious! With the soda and all I followed the recipe exactly so I'll go with the majority it is perfect try it yourself. Oh I didn't even have icing!
I reduced the oil to the cake mix amount of 1/2C. I think 3/4C of oil is way too much. I added some poppy seeds (personal preference to lemon cakes)but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. When I tested for doness at 35min. The cake FELL. Completely flattened! Thats the first time EVER that has happened to me. So at 35 min. the cake was not done but very brown. I baked another 20 minutes for doneness. Please note that the bake time is 325 but I did a 350 oven for almost an hour. Also this has an artificial lemon taste and has NO tangy Zip taste of lemons. Needs real lemon juice instead of the carbonated drink that I believe is leaving a bad tingly after taste in my mouth. Sorry but thumbs down to everything about this recipe.
Wonderful-I've made this recipe a dozen times already and everyone I know asks for it at every party. I have found the cooking time extends about ten minutes. Don't use mountain dew- I just tried that and it changed the taste dramatically as well as the texture and color. Dew has more sugar and caffine so I found sprite or 7 up is best. I always top it with a cream cheese icing- Blend 4T fresh lemon juice 4 oz cream cheese and 2 cups powdered sugar until smooth- drizzle all over cooled cake. Add thinly sliced lemons around the edges on your cake plate and voila! Beautiful.
