Lemon Pudding Pound Cake

Lemon is such an amazing flavor for summer time! As a kid, lemon desserts were always my favorite!  Since getting married I haven’t tried many recipes of the lemon persuasion, as my hubby’s not a fan.  But then several months ago, I had a slice of this lemon cake at a potluck, and I was totally wishing I could take the whole thing home with me!
Since then I’ve been on a search for the perfect lemon pound cake.  I decided to start with this recipe.  I’ve seen it on several sites but most recently over at Tidy Mom.  And I think I’ve already found my perfect lemon pound cake.  (Hubby even tried it and loved it! So…Hooray! We have a winner!)

Recipe for Lemon Pudding Pound Cake:
Cake Ingredients:
1 box lemon instant pudding mix (4 serving size)
1 box yellow cake mix
4 eggs
1 cup water
1/2 cup oil
Glaze Ingredients: 
2-3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup powdered sugar
Directions:  Spray pan with cooking spray.  You can use a 9×13 or bundnt.  Preheat oven to 350.  Combine all cake ingredients and mix for 2 minutes and medium speed.  Pour into pan and bake. For a 9×13 cake bake for 30-35.  For a bundt, bake 35-40 minutes.
Let cake cool completely.  Then whisk together powdered sugar and lemon juice until smooth.  Drizzle over cake.  Serve and enjoy!
