Ready In:
1hr 10mins
1 cake


  • 1 (18 ounce) box lemon cake mix, super moist (try Betty Crocker)
  • 1 14 cups water
  • 13 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 (3 1/2 ounce) boxes instant lemon pudding (4-serving size each)
  • 2 34 cups milk
  • whipped cream, if desired


  • Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray (do not use a dark or nonstick pan).
  • In a large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil, lemon peel and eggs with electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally.
  • Pour into pan; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, beat pudding mix and milk with wire whisk or spoon for 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth. Drizzle pudding over batter to within 1/2 inch of edges of pan.
  • Bake 43 to 48 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched in center and edges pull away from sides of pan (center will be set but slightly jiggly).
  • Cool 20 minutes. Cake will appear sunken in center.
  • Spoon warm pudding cake, top side down, into bowls; top with whipped topping. Store in refrigerator.

  1. i was looking everywhere for this recipe! we have had it in the past for a adult get together and everyone just loves it! now i can make it again thanks for posting!!


My name is Ashley... I have a daughter who is 14 months old and a loving fiance. I'm here to improve my cooking skills, as I can barely manage dinner sometimes! I love to bake, though. Someday, I'll be able to cook every recipe I've saved from here... which is over a thousand. Most recipes I put up are one's I find from books or online; some are for me to remember later on. ***If you really loved a recipe, plan to make it again, and had no complaints... DON'T GIVE IT JUST 4 STARS! Give the recipe its deserved 5 stars.**** With that in mind, if you're going to post a picture of the finished meal/food you just reviewed, at least make it look appealing with better lighting! I've seen some horrible pictures that turned me away completely from making something on here, even though I'm sure the food tastes great.
