This was great. Took it to a potluck and everyone loved it. No leftovers that's for sure. I just dusted it with conf. sugar, but I think I'd like to try a lemon glaze next time. One problem: I thought the directions were a bit vague. I bake alot and knew that the oven temp. and baking time were average, but someone who is new to it might get confused. It's 350*, and 35-40 minutes.
good cake! beat all ingredients together for about 2 minutes and bake at 350 degrees for about 45-55 minutes. used a glaze of 1/2 mixed lemon juice and orange juice and 2 cups powdered sugar. poured over hot cake slowly (while still in pan) and then let cool completely. very good results! thanks for the recipe.
This was excellent and did NOT taste like it started out its life as a "box cake"! I used a Duncan Hines Lemon cake mix and followed the recipe exactly (using light sour cream instead of regular full-fat). However, in my oven, using a bundt pan, it took about 50 minutes at 350F to totally cook through. I also made a glaze of butter, lemon, a sprinkle of ginger, and confectioner's sugar (aka caster sugar) which I drizzled over the top while the cake was warm (I poked some holes in the top and sides of the cake with a bamboo skewer so the glaze would seep in). The cake was beautiful and tasted great, especially with a small scoop of Gifford's Wild Maine Blueberry ice cream on the side. Next time, I am considering adding some minced, dried lavender flowers to the batter or possibly to just the glaze (instead of ginger) for a slightly different flavor. A small slice is very satisfying, and I think that we probably got 20 or more slices from this cake. Thank you for posting this easy, tasty recipe.
