I love anything lemon. So after looking for an intense lemon cake recipe this is what I came up with. For a more intense lemon flavor add the whole can of lemonade concentrate. I poured white chocolate ganache over it but you can add a sugar icing or leave it as is! Enjoy!

Lemonliscious Lemon Cake


  • 1 lemon cake mix ( I used Duncan Hines)
  • 1 sm. Box of instant lemon pudding

  • ½ can of frozen lemonade concentrate

  • 1 c. vegetable oil

  • 1 c. sour cream

  • 4 eggs

  • ½ c. water


    Preheat over to 350 degrees. Grease and flour bundt pan or cake pan.

  1. In a bowl mix cake mix and pudding together.
  2. Mix sour cream, oil, eggs, water and lemonade concentrate together. Slowly mix in dry ingredients.
  3. Pour batter into prepared cake pan.
  4. Bake 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  5. Let cool for 10-15 minutes, invert onto platter.
  6. Cool completely, pour white chocolate ganache or sugar glaze over it. Or leave it as is.
  7. White Chocolate Ganache
  8. 2 cups white chocolate chips
  9. 1 tbsp. butter
  10. ½ c. heavy cream
  11. Bring cream and butter to boil, add white chocolate chips. Stir until completely melted. Pour into bowl. Let cool but still pourable.
  12. Pour over lemon cake.

Excellent recipe!!! I have always been reluctant to use boxed mixes, but wanted an intense lemon recipe for baby shower cupcakes.

These turned out spectacular. I ended up frosting with chocolate buttercream. Rave reviews from the shower guests.

I tried this but without the pudding mix and it was so yummy tart and creamy. I brushed on a little of the lemonade concentrate once they cooled.
