Let’s get started!

This recipe is so easy and uses box cake mix and lemon instant pudding...and a few other common ingredients

Lemon Loaf Cake

You will need a total of 10 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice to make this recipe: 6 for the cake and 4 for the lemon glaze. Fresh lemon juice adds the perfect tangy flavor!

Make The Batter


In a mixing bowl add all the ingredients for the lemon loaf cakes. Mix until thouroughly comibned.



Split the batter between 2 loaf pans (coated with non-stick cooking spray). Bake in a 350° oven for about 50 minutes

While the lemon cakes cools prepare the glaze. 3 cups of powerdered sugar & 4 tablespoons lemon juice.
