  • 18.25 ounces lemon cake mix
  • 3 ounces lemon instant pudding mix
  • 4 eggs room temperature
  • ¾ cup unsweetened applesauce no sugar added
  • cup vanilla Almondmilk or regular milk
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest


  • 2 ½ cups powdered sugar divided
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Grease and flour a bundt pan and set aside. (I like to use the spray with the flour in it!)
  • In a large bowl, combine lemon cake mix and lemon pudding mix. Whisk together.
  • Add eggs, applesauce, milk, lemon juice and lemon zest. Whisk together until just combined.
  • Slowly pour cake batter the into the prepared bundt pan.
  • Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let cool for 15 minutes while you prepare the glaze.


  • In a small bowl, combine 1 cup powdered sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Whisk together until no lumps remain.
  • Remove the cake from the par and place on a cooling rack or cake plate.
  • Use a skewer to poke small holes all over the top of the cake. Slowly drizzle about half of the glaze on top of the cake. Let the cake sit until completely cooled.
  • Whisk in remaining powdered sugar, adding more if needed to reach desired consistency.
  • Drizzle cake again with the glaze. Garnish with additional lemon zest if desired.
  • Slice and serve.
