    This looks wonderful. What size box cake mix would you use? Depending on the brand they are different sizes.

    Is the pudding mix the instant kind or the cook and serve pudding? This looks like a nice moist cake and perfect for spring. I want to make it soon.

    1. Julie

      That's my question exactly! They need to be more specific.

    2. Chef in Training

      Instant. SO sorry about that! I thought I had clarified. It is updated to say so now :)

    My bundt pan is a dark non-stick pan. Should I adjust the oven temperature for this? What type of pan do you have?

  5. Dodi Smith

    This is delicious. I'm not really a box cake kind of person, but this was quick and very good. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Karen Lewis

    I just found your site tonight. Oh my goodness. The food looks delicious. I definitely will be putting some of these on my table.

  7. Leah

    This is absolutely perfect! I made this yesterday for Mother's Day, and my family raved about it!

    I used the exact recipe, however, my oven is not regulated properly, so I preheated to 350, put the cake in, lowered to 325 immediately and baked for 50 minutes.

    Wow! Moist and delicious! The lemon flavor is perfect.

    Do you think I can use the same recipe with chocolate cake mix? Without the lemon of course.

  8. Stephanie

    This looks wonderful! I wonder if I could add blueberries to it?

    I make this same cake, but I use a glaze on top. Use powder sugar and lemon juice and zest and pour over cooled cake.

    This cake was a huge hit at my "summer solstice" party last night! Truly moist and delicious!

    Hi, I'm in Australia, so box sizes differ for cake mixes etc. The dry ingredients in our cake boxes (not including the icing sugar mix) is 340g or nearly 12 ounces. What weight is the box used in this recipe? Thanks

    Don't think 5 minutes is long enough to sit in pan....half mine stayed in pan when inverted! Also not enough frosting to do what is shown in picture. Got half way around, thinking I could cover my messy cake, and ran out of frosting. Not a happy camper ?

    1. Judy

      Sorry... I should have added to post that I use many of your posted recipes and love them. Thank you!

    Delish!!! So moist and the icing is yummy!!!

  14. Rhonda

    My cake was so nice and tall when I took it out of the oven. After it cooked for 5 minutes, it was half the size it was to begin with. Now it is only about 2 inches tall. Isn't it supposed to be taller than that?

    1. Rhonda

      After it cooled, not cooked.

    2. Hilda Sterner

      Just made the cake and experienced the same thing. It was perfect, until it sat for a few minutes and completely deflated... hoping it tastes better than it looks!

    My cake came out of the oven looking beautiful, then fell as it was cooling. Any idea what I did wrong?

  16. Rhonda Mercuri

    Could I subsitute oranges for the lemon with the same results?

  17. Rhonda Mercuri

    Would oranges be ok instead of lemons?

  18. Natalie

    I made this on Christmas Eve and we all loved it! It was moist and delicious. I loved the icing.

    I made this cake for New Years! It was awesome! I used the mix I had in my pantry that already had pudding in the mix. It still turned out moist and delicious! And yes that frosting is AMAZING. It tastes like those lemon drop candies.

  20. Barb P

    Making it now, smells and looks aw some. I will send a pic
    Thank you

    I made this for our anniversary and it was delicious. I did change one thing though, I used a lemon pudding mix in place of the vanilla pudding mix. This is the best lemon cake that I have ever eaten.

    Although the cake deflated upon cooling for a few minutes, the taste was fantastic!

  25. Sushi Sue

    This was a winner at the Super Bowl party. It's so moist, tasty and easy to make. The kids loved the flavor and I'll definitely be baking it again soon!

    I made this cake last year for a "Pinterest" girls party and thought I had left a comment. This cake was one of best cakes I have ever made. It turned out perfect. I am having friends over in a few days and planning to make it again. I hope that it's just as wonderful as the first time. Thank you so much for sharing this awesome recipe.
    PS: my frosting didn't turn out as pretty as yours. :)

    My coworkers wife passed away and we fed his family after the funeral. I was in charge of desserts and was hesitant to make this since it was a new recipe. I did it anyways and was so glad I did. He called me that night to say thank you and said that this cake was the best cake he ever had. I didn't get to try the cake but I will definitely be making this again!

  28. Michelle

    I made this for a cookout this weekend. My cake fell. I've never in my life had a cake fall!! Thought it was a fluke so I stopped by the store and got the ingredients to try it again. I added a few minutes to the cooking time thinking that would help. Nope!! The second cake is even thinner than the first!! Great flavor but they look terrible!!! I will not make this again.

  29. Kamwest

    Can I substitute butter for the oil ?

  30. Carol Gordon

    I made this in a 9 x 13 pan because I didn't have a Bundt pan and adjusted the time. At 30 min I checked it and it was a flop with dark edges. Had to throw it away.

    I made this cake for an Easter potluck and was amazed by it. None of the other deserts were touched. Even the kids chose it over the very cute birds nest cupcake.

  35. kelley

    a small box of instant pudding is 1 oz. do I use 4 boxes?

  36. Suem

    I made this cake for Easter brunch. I had to keep adding more powdered sugar to the frosting to make it stiff enough to pipe otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I came out with a lot of frosting and thought I made too much but my daughter said no, that was the best part. It was extremely moist and lemony. Everyone loved it!

  37. Trish

    Hi , i would love to make your cake, i live in Ireland so i dont no what instant pudding is. can u please explain. thank you so much.

  38. Annie

    I'm a lousy cook and it was delicious!

    Delicious. Came out of the pan perfectly. Way moist. Frosting delish. Makes a wonderful breakfast with coffee!

  40. Linda

    Does this need to be refrigerated since it has cream cheese frosting?

  41. Brenda

    What size bundt pan?

  42. Cynthia

    Tried this recipe yesterday and it was AMAZING! rich, moist and so lemony!

  43. Rhonda Barajas

    I made this Lemon cake and it was so moist. I put lemon pudding instead if vanilla cause I wanted it to be real lemony. My husband took some to work and the guys couldn't believe that I made it. They said it was so delicious. Thank you for a great recipe.
