It has been way too long since I shared a lemon dessert with you all! It’s been at least a month 🙂 Today I’ve got an Easy Lemon Bundt Cake that is going to blow you away with it’s amazing lemon flavor.
I lightened up one of my favorite easy cake recipes by using applesauce instead of oil and Almond Breeze Vanilla Almondmilk instead in place of regular milk. The vanilla almondmilk adds a lovely vanilla flavor that complements the lemon cake but you can use the original flavor as well.
I was tempted to go all egg whites but those egg yolks add so much depth as well as contribute to the bold yellow color of this cake. Also? Extra protein. If you like, you can eliminate up to two of the egg yolks and still have sensational results.
This cake is double-glazed. Shortly after removing the easy lemon bundt cake from the oven, I poke holes all over the top and then slowly drizzle on an intensely-flavored lemon glaze. Once the glaze has soaked in. I add enough powdered sugar to the remaining glaze to get it a little thicker and then drizzle that over the top as well.
The first glaze makes the cake even more lemon-y which makes me one happy lady. I just love my lemon desserts!
This cake is perfect for BBQs, picnics, parties, potlucks and more! Feel free to garnish with lemon slices, mint, and lemon zest!

I guess I’m the first to actually give a review. I used a Betty Crocker Super Moist lemon cake mix (432 g – I’m Canadian) and didn’t even know there was a size change but thought the box seemed a bit smaller than they used to be. I used the ingredients as listed, except I used the full lemon worth of zest so probably 1.5 T in the cake itself and 1 T in the glaze. I wasn’t going to bother with the applesauce or almond milk but I did decide to make a trip to the grocer and make according to recipe. The cake is fabulous! So moist and so lemony. I will definitely make again. My neighbour gave me her bundt pan (to keep) and I promised to give her some of the cake when I made it. I ‘almost’ hate to have to give some away, it’s that good.
It sounds yummy, but since 18.25 oz. cake mixes have not been available for quite some time, how can this recipe be adjusted to work with the new smaller size cake mixes? I’d like to make this cake, but I don’t want to waste my ingredients, in case it doesn’t turn out well, using a new smaller cake mix.

I purchased a cake mix today at walmart that is 18.5 oz. It’s Duncan Hines brand and I got the Lemon Supreme flavor

I’m just trying to make this. The Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme I purchased at Walmart is 15.25 oz. I looked everywhere for one with larger quantity. I hope it works cause I’m salivating as i mix it.?
Does it have to be ‘instant’ pudding mix or can I use lemon pudding and pie filling (powdered)?

Can you add blueberries to this?
