Lemon Cake Mix Bread

We always love a non-yeast bread recipe that is delicious AND simple. Some may argue that using a cake mix to make bread is cheating but I think it’s genius.

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.

We can’t wait for you to try some of this delicious bread!! If you like Lemon and White Chocolate I’d definitely give this one a try.

How to make

COMBINE. Mix cake mix, pudding mix, oil and eggs in a bowl with a beater until well combined. Add sour cream, lemon juice and lemon zest. Mix by hand. Pour into greased loaf pans.

BAKE. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes (For smaller loaf pans, bake for about 15 minutes). Let cool.

GLAZE. Poke holes in the top of the bread and drizzle with glaze (To make, mix 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar, juice and zest of one lemon – add more lemon juice if glaze is too thick). ENJOY!

Tips + Storing Info

  • Use a different flavor of pudding mix for the glaze, lemon or vanilla pudding make great options to sub for the white chocolate.
  • Substitute plain Greek yogurt or cottage cheese for sour cream. Just make sure that you aren’t using the low fat varieties.
  • Make mini-loaves of this bread. Fill your mini pans no more than ½ way full and check on them every 5 min after 25 min of cooking. Once a toothpick comes out clean they are ready to take out of the oven.

Make this bread ahead of time and FREEZE (before you add the glaze) for up to 6 months. Once it has cooled simply wrap it in plastic wrap and then store it in a Ziploc freezer bag or wrapped in aluminum foil. It would also be best to wait to add the glaze until after you have thawed it in the fridge overnight, and then brought it to room temperature.

STORE covered in in the fridge for a few days.

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

  2. 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!

    1. 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. 🙂

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

  4. 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.

    1. 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. :/
