Easy Lemon Cake Recipe
Helloooooooooooo! It’s me, Lily again! Did you miss me? I know… it seems like a long time since the last time I posted. 😉 So, how did your Spring break go? Mine was so fun! My friend, Raylee, came into town and we did so many cool things. My favorite thing that we did was Sea World. The best ride was called Steel Eel! It’s a super fast roller coaster!! I went on it 3 times. It was amazing!! Speaking of Spring Break, it’s Spring!! Spring time makes me think of fruit and lemons and the dessert we are sharing today. It’s Lemon Sheet Cake! This Lemon Sheet Cake is one of the easiest lemon cake recipes you will ever make!
The reason why it’s so easy is because we used a lemon cake mix that came out of a box! It also has pudding mix in it, which makes it so good. There were only a few other ingredients we put in the cake besides those. The best part is the lemon buttercream frosting on top. This lemon cake is SO delicious and creamy!! I already told my mom I want to make this again. I think it’s the perfect dessert for Spring and for Summer!!
Check out that creamy lemon frosting!!
How to Make Lemon Frosting:
Like I said, one of my favorite parts about the cake is the super yummy lemon buttercream frosting on top! Here’s what you’ll need…
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 4 oz. cream cheese (softened)
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 2 TB lemon jello mix
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 TB lemon juice (you can use more if you want more lemon taste)
- a few teaspoons lemon zest
- 1-2 TB milk
Start by creaming together the butter and cream cheese. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla, lemon jello mix, lemon juice, lemon zest and milk. Beat until the frosting is creamy and smooth. And that’s it! Easy peasy.
This cake is perfect for the ultimate lemon fan. I haven’t always loved lemon, but I DO love this cake. It’s so delicious and so moist!
