"This recipe got 5 stars from six people. I make some kind of lemon cake every week for DH to take to work. All of his co-workers said it had the perfect amount of lemon, was very moist and light. I've got the word, they want this cake again next week. I used the vanilla instant pudding. The only change I made was to use my own glaze, which is just 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice and 2 cups powdered sugar heated on the stove until the sugar is melted. Thank you for a really simple recipe that made me look like a star!"
"This is one of the best ever all-time perfect cakes! Everyone always loves it! I have been making this cake forever . . . still have the magazine page I tore out from back in the day. . . pulled out the recipe a couple of years ago . . . it is just a classic! I use the yellow cake with lemon pudding and the original is not quite like this but with the same components. I have always wanted to experiment with a strawberry (cake mix) lemonade version . . . I just don't see how you can go wrong with that!
Also, I find it so much even better as it sits a day or two in the pan (13 x 9)soaking up the glaze completely. Update: The strawberry version came out very well -- I used a vanilla pudding."
"My Mom use to make this cake in the '70's - we all loved it - I am so glad I found it again!!! Thank you - I can't wait to make it again!"
"This was very, very moist. I took it to work and got raves. Very easy to do!"
"Wonderful! I made this the first time and had them begging to make it again. Very simple and tasty. The lemonade flavor is not too strong. The icing is a bit sour but it compliments the cake perfectly!! This is a keeper that is perfect for company or when you just want something a bit sweet with a little tang."
"I can't believe only 2 people have rated this so far. It's a well kept secret, I guess. This cake is SO GOOD! I have made it many times this summer and everyone has gone crazy for it! I'm not a big fan of glazes, so I use a 12 oz cool whip mixed with 2 small instant vanilla pudding and 1 lemon instant pudding mixes, and blend it with a little milk. I also baked it in 2 9in round pans for about 27 minutes. SO DELICIOUS!!"
"Very easy to make, and extremely moist, so good. It resembles the texture of a pound cake. this cake is so good when my sister tried it she said " This will be the cake for my wedding" I made a cool whip-based frosting instead of this one as suggested by my friend who also loved this cake. Will make it again!"
