box yellow cake mix
small box (4 oz.) instant lemon pudding
cups 7 Up (or similar lemon lime soda)
cup vegetable oil
cups confectioners sugar
tbsp. lemon juice
The bottled lemon juice will work just fine for this recipe too.
Preheat oven to 325F degrees Spray your 10-inch bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray. I like to use the spray that has flour in it, it's called Baker's Joy. In a medium bowl, combine all the cake ingredients. Mix until thoroughly combined. Pour batter into bundt pan. Bake for about 45-55 minutes (until inserted toothpick or fork comes out clean). Allow to cool completely, then remove from bundt pan. Start preparing icing. If you're using a fresh lemon, you might like to zest a bit of the lemon for more flavor. That step is totally optional. In a small bowl, combine sugar and lemon juice. Add milk in slowly until you've reached desired consistency. You may want your icing a bit thicker or more like a glaze. That part is completely up to you. This icing is nice and tangy and brings a nice balance of flavor alongside the sweet cake. Pour icing over cake. And serve. That is sunshine on a plate right there! Go on - take a bite! Enjoy!
