This is a very easy yet delicious bundt cake that needs only a dusting of powdered sugar on top, if desired. I made this for Easter a couple of years ago and EVERYONE loved it. It is requested that I make for various functions over the year. Very moist with a great lemon flavor. I have also had many requests for the recipe. Thanks Paula!

There are several recipes out there for Mt. Dew cake, but this is the recipe I use. This cake is requested at least twice a year by my family. It is so easy to make, delicious, and very moist. There is no need for a glaze or frosting. I was happy when I saw you had posted this recipe. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I have the exact same recipe. It turns out delicious every time. I have a very finicky oven, so the cooking time gets cut down by about 5 minutes. I've already made it five times, and each time it never failed. It's very hard to mess up!
