I had such a taste for good lemon cake. I got out an old recipe and changed it around a bit.
1 pkg. (2 layer size) of lemon cake mix
2 pkg (3/4 oz each) Lemon Flavored Instant Pudding
1/4 cup white granulated sugar
2 cups cold milk
1 1/4 cups water
Juice of one lemon
Zest of one lemon.
Powdered sugar for topping.
Prepare cake mix as directed, (I exchanged the vegetable oil with coconut oil.)
Pour into a 13 X 9 baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
Put dry pudding mixes, granulated sugar, milk and water into a bowl and beat with a whisk for
about 2 minutes till it begins to thicken.
Add the juice and the zest of one lemon to the pudding mix and stir.
(For a tarter lemon taste you can increase the zest to 2 lemons)
Pour evenly over batter in baking dish. (I used a dipper to do this)
Bake for 55-60 minutes till done.
Pudding will thicken as it cools.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Just out of the oven.
