This recipe is from the site Recipe4Living.com. A friend of mine was looking for someone to make it for him. And the recipe looks yummy. My mother loves anything lemon, so I will have to make it for her.

We made this for our Dad's 91st birthday. It was delicious and so easy to make!! Not a thing needs to be changed..
Note that the cake mix will not be the same as specified (I found 15 1/4 oz) and the "regular size" pudding is the smaller 4 serving size boxes.
I can't wait to experiiment with chocolate substituted for lemon cake and puddling...and water instead of lemon juice!
