Lemon Cake Mix Bread

I’m no expert with yeast, which means I make many quick bread recipes and not many yeast breads. My mom, on the other hand, has been working with yeast all her life and can tackle ANY bread recipe. Fortunately for me, she found a great White Chocolate Lemon Bread recipe that contains NO yeast. She tried it out and made a load for each of the families. The loaf was literally gone in MINUTES (no joke!) It was SO GOOD!

I was thrilled to find out that it was a non-yeast bread recipe that was delicious AND simple. Some may argue that using a cake mix to make bread is cheating but I say “Who cares? It’s easy and yummy!” πŸ˜‰

Look how delicious this is?! The hubby claims this is his new favorite bread. I may have to agree with him. I’m not a HUGE Lemon fan, but this recipe had just the right amount of lemon that it wasn’t overwhelming at all. And the glaze on top was definitely my favorite part. IΒ can’t wait to have some more of this delicious bread!! If you like Lemon and White Chocolate I’d definitely give this one a try.

    Kristyn, this bread looks delicious!! I was super nervous about using yeast too until I discovered a thermometer especially for yeast! It gives you this little window of how hot your water has to be to make the yeast grow, and now I’m making perfect pizza dough. And . . . realizing this sounds like spam. I swear I don’t sell them, lol!

    Crystal

    Looks delicious!! I agree with you….I’m a little hesitant about making anything with yeast. I have tried a couple of recipes and they actually turned out pretty good. But, it I can make bread without yeast, it is great!! Thanks for the great recipe!!

    Amanda @ thetastetester

    I love anything with LEMON but adding that white chocolate pudding mix… makes this bread look divine πŸ™‚ It would be fun to drizzle melted white chocolate over the bread as well!

      It may taste a little like cake too just because it is so darn good! πŸ™‚

    Rachael

    So the glaze calls for lime juice. Is that a misprint? You just don’t mention lime anywhere else…..

    readbakesmile

    Just mixed mine up and about to pop in the oven!! Simply CANNOT wait to taste this!!

      readbakesmile

      I made it! It came out beautifully and everybody loved it and said it was “crazy good”!!!

        Lil' Luna

        YAY! SO glad to hear it. Thanks for stopping by to let me know how it turned out. πŸ™‚ Have a great day!

    Heidi

    Looks yummy! What size pan?

    Tabitha

    This bread is amazing! I cooked it a little longer than I should, but now I know how long it’ll take w/ my oven & loaf pan. I am NOT a baker, thanks for giving me back the confidence to try! I’m eating leftovers as I type this… YUM!

      Lil' Luna

      Thanks for stopping by Tabitha! SO glad you were able to make this and that it turned out great!! Be sure to try my other bread recipes because they are just as good AND just as easy! Have a great day. πŸ™‚

        Tabitha

        Oh, don’t you worry! I’m planning on banana bread next. I’ll let you know how that one goes!

          Lil' Luna

          Great! Definitely keep me posted. πŸ˜€

    Pam

    Can you tell me what size of pan you used and is there really lime in the glaze? Thanks! It looks fantastic!!

      Lil' Luna

      HI Pam. So sorry for the confusion… we used small paper pans, but I added in the notes different times for different sizes of pans. πŸ™‚

    Elaine

    I read through the comments to look for answers to the questions I had. Several had the same questions that I do, and they were not answered. What size pans (taking it is regular size bread loaf pans) and how many, as the directions say to pour into greased loaf pans??? Also, directions to mix powdered sugar with lime juice. Life isn’t listed as an ingredient. Is it Lime or Lemon?

      Lil' Luna

      You can make it as 2 regular size loaf pans or smaller ones… I added some info under NOTES above. And the glaze calls for lemon… not lime. Sorry about that. :/

    Elaine

    In my last comment, I meant to say that LIME isn’t listed as an ingredient. Is it Lime or Lemon?

      Lil' Luna

      I’m sorry for all the confusion… it’s lemon. I had new baby, new move brain which means it was mush at the time when I posted this. :/

    Liz

    Nice recipes. Thank you so much. Have a great weekend!

      Lil' Luna

      Thank you for stopping by. Hope you have a great weekend as well. πŸ™‚

    Egi

    With what else can you eat these kind of bread? or it is like a desert?

      Lil' Luna

      I wouldn’t call it a dessert, but it’s just a YUMMY snack! πŸ˜€

    Sue

    So, where does the white chocolate come from? I’ve read the recipe carefully and the notes but I can’t find the white chocolate anywhere but in the title.

    Tami

    Why the hell would anyone call this a “bread”?!?!?!?! It’s a freaking packaged cake mix combined with a packaged pudding mix!!!!!!!!

    JEnnifer

    I have made this 2x and it is excellent! It is my new favorite! It is so delicious that when I make it, I have to take it somewhere so I do not eat it all!

      Lil' Luna

      LOL!! Isn’t it so good?? I love sweet bread recipes (especially those that don’t involve yeast)! So glad you like it, and thank you for stopping by. πŸ™‚

    Jeanine

    I made cupcakes. These are so wonderful. I love lemon so right up my alley! Besides, they are pretty too.

    Rhonda

    This recipe looks amazing and I cannot wait to make it, but I have a quick question. Adding water to the mix is not listed as an ingredient, is that correct? Look forward to your reply and to both gifting and eating this delicious lemon piece of heaven. Thank you!

      Lil' Luna

      Yes, that’s correct, Rhona… there is no water in the recipe. Let me know how it goes. I promise you’ll love it! ;D

        Rhonda

        Thank you so much for the quick reply and clarification!

          Rhonda

          Btw, my entire reply did not go through. Ugh! I am looking forward to gifting these tomorrow, on a picture frame (as the platter, featuring your recipe inside), with a piece of parchment paper around the middle and tied with yellow and white twine! I bet all my girls will adopt this recipe as a go-to in the future! Thanks and I’ll keep you posted!

            Lil' Luna

            Let me know how it goes! I hope they love it. πŸ™‚

    Hello Kristyn, I just recently stumbled across your awesome site a few days ago while I was on Pinterest. I tried your Creamy Swiss Chicken Bake the other night and it was absolutely heavenly & Delicious! So of course I just had to explore your site even more to see what other tasty morsels I wanted to try. lol πŸ™‚ So many easy & scrumptious looking recipes I have already saved to try, but I was a little confused when I came across a few of your recipes like this white chocolate lemon bread one in which you mention a portion (small) white chocolate instant pudding mix instead of an actual weight in ounces or grams. I am aware the Jello company makes many flavors in these instant puddings, and they can be purchased on Amazon, but I do not use Amazon at the moment, and since I live in a smaller city in BC, Canada, I do not have access to all Jellos’ pudding flavors. Pretty limited here lol. The Giant Mega stores do not even spoil us with stocking the limited edition holiday flavors πŸ™ You say (small) size, but I am only aware of one size in these puddings 99-133g approx. for most flavors, and the awesome white chocolate one is not available here at all, except in the fat free version (a much smaller size at only 32g). No access either to a no-name brand of white chocolate instant mix. I know you mention vanilla pudding as a replacement on a couple recipes, but I would much rather have that subtle white chocolate flavor lol. So my curious question in my confusion is … what size weight is small and would the fat free (32g) be considered too small? πŸ˜‰ Thank you so much for sharing your delicious recipes so generously. I will be baking & cooking up a storm for years to come πŸ™‚

      Lil' Luna

      Oh, thank you so much!!! I’m so glad you stopped by!! The small boxes are like 3.9 ounces. I know that some places do not carry certain things, so I’m so sorry about that!! I know you said you would like the white chocolate flavor, but vanilla pudding is the next best. Next time you’re visiting somewhere, you’ll have to check their stores and stock up πŸ™‚ Let me know if you have any other questions!!! Happy baking/cooking!!

        Cat

        Thank you so much for your reply and for letting me know Kristyn. I look forward to giving this one a whirl through the kitchen with a couple of the fat free smaller white chocolate pudding mixes I can get my hands on here lol πŸ˜‰ Will keep me eyes pealed for the regular white chocolate and any holiday ones during the festive seasons πŸ˜€

          Lil' Luna

          You’re welcome and good luck!!! Happy baking πŸ™‚

    Julia

    Stupid question but what weight should the lemon cake mix and the pudding mix be? Cant wait to make this for my hubby who loves anything Lemon. Thanks

      Julia

      Sorry also meant to say will angel delight be ok?

      Kristyn Merkley

      The lemon cake mix is about 15.25 ounces & the pudding is like 3.4 ounces or close to that. He will love it!

        Julia

        Thank you so much, thats such a great help

    2pots2cook

    My favourite combination of flavours ! Thank you so much !

    Carolyn wells

    I still cannot get your recipes to copy! I can get to the print and click on that but the recipe does get to the printer!

      Kristyn Merkley

      Could you write them out? I know that’s what my mom likes to do, when she is having computer problems. It’s just an option.

    Carolyn wells

    The printer is ready the page comes up with the recipe and it says β€œprint”, but there is a gray page that comes up but no recipe on there.

      Kristyn Merkley

      I’m not sure why it does?? I just tried on my computer & the recipe card pops up, not a gray blank page. It might be something on your end?? Not sure what it could be :/ I hope you get it figured out πŸ™‚
