Update: another lemon cake!

A friend of mine named Alex purchased a cake to share with his Theory of Knowledge class. The class is part of a rigorous academic program at our school. He and everyone else in the class loved it! The cake that I made is a variation of a lemon cake that I sold a while back. Rather than a plain lemon cake with lemon glaze, I added blackberry glaze and fresh berries. The blackberry on lemon not only made an exciting color contrast, but the flavor combination was very rich and pleasant.

Lemon blackberry cake


My first recipe for lemon cake can be found here. I’ve been experimenting with lemon cakes recently and I’ve discovered an easy, simple cake recipe that produces a wonderfully moist and rich cake. The recipe for the simple lemon cake can be found bellow!


  • 1 box Duncan Hines lemon cake mix
  • 1 box lemon pudding mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 and 1/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • A heaping spoonful of greek yogurt or sour cream


Heat your oven to 350 degrees and butter or grease a 12 cup bundt pan. 

Whisk together the pudding mix and the cake mix until well combined. Using a hand mixer, add in all of the wet ingredients until incorporated. Mix on high for 2 or 3 minutes until batter is light and fluffy. Pour batter evenly into bundt pan and bake for 35-40 minutes until cake does not appear wet and a toothpick comes out covered in crumbs (not batter!). Let cool for 5-10 minutes and flip pan upside down to remove cake while it’s still warm. Cool completely before adding glaze and/or fruit. 

Voila! Everyone loves this recipe. They would never guess that it was made from cake mix!
