Lemon Sheet Cake

Super moist and delicious Lemon Sheet Cake recipe topped off with a tasty lemon buttercream frosting - our new favorite dessert!

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. My favorite ride was called Steel Eel! It’s a super fast roller coaster!! I went on it 3 times. It was amazing!! It goes up so high and then drops down so low. It starts off so smoothly and then goes SO crazy!! You totally have to go on it if you ever visit Sea World. 😉 Speaking of Spring Break, it’s Spring!! Makes me think of fruit and lemons and the dessert we are sharing today. It’s Lemon Sheet Cake!

This cake is SO delicious!! It’s so creamy and tasty. It has pudding mix in it, which makes it so good. I already told my mom I want to make this again. I think it’s the perfect dessert for Spring and for Summer!!

    Hi Lily,
    It’s nice to hear from you. I love your recipe for lemon cake and I love lemon. I hope you have a wonderful Easter Sunday in all ways.

    I love lemon Lily so I know I’ll love your cake. You are growing up so quickly, but you’re still pretty. Thank you Lily.

    Have you tried this with sugar free pudding and jello?

  4. 5

    Hi there! Could I bake the batter into two round pans and make a layered cake with this recipe?

  5. 7

    I made this for Easter dessert and everyone loved it. It was so lemony, light and delicious! Would love to be able to cut the recipe down to make just an 8 x 8 cake when it is just the two of us, ingredients and bake time? Any suggestions! Thank you so much for posting this recipe

    Is the white chocolate pudding mix suppose to be instant or the cooked type?

    Just looking at the lemon cake mix and it calls for 1C of water. This may be a dumb question but do you use that and the cup of buttermilk?? I want to make this tomorrow for our Memorial Day picnic…. thanks!!! It just seems like a lot of liquid. Thanks for sharing this recipe, looking forward to trying it!!

    I made the recipe exactly as outlined, but my cake fell. I think that there’s too much liquid with the buttermilk and water. I hope it still tastes good, next time though I think I will try cutting back on the water

    Can you use a jelly roll pan instead of a 9×13 pan for lemon bars?
