A make easy white cake from a mix with pockets of lemon filling. Have not tried this yet, but I hope someone beats me to it because it sounds great! Cook time and servings are estimated; check box for actuals.

I'm making this cake as I'm writing. So I can't give a review quite yet. But I'd just like to say that I would love to read a review that is actually based on the original recipe. Not changed, added to, taken away or totally redone. It is one of my pet peeves. Please if you don't make the recipe like the original, don't post a review on it.
