No-Fail Pound Cake

This pound cake made with cake mix is simple to make and the best I've ever tasted. I often take one to work, where it quickly disappears. I also use this recipe at Christmas time to make 6 small loaves for gifts, which take about 45 minutes to bake.

  • cup water

  • 1 (15.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10-inch Bundt pan.

  2. Cream together sugar and butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in vanilla and lemon extracts. Beat in sour cream and water. Beat in cake mix and flour until incorporated. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
