Lemon Pudding Cake with Chocolate Frosting

21 Aug

 

When I was younger, whenever my mom would bake a cake she would get two ingredients, a box of cake mix and a box pudding mix.  Usually in lemon flavor for both. It was the only recipe my grandmother passed down to her and it’s a fabulous one at that. The cake gets moist from the pudding mix while the lemon flavor is right smack dab in your face if you know what I mean. Then when you add a thick layer of chocolate frosting, you’re in heaven.

By the way, just how pretty is Seattle? I fall in love more and more with this city every day.

Ingredients 

  • One box of lemon cake mix
  • One box of lemon pudding mix
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • Zest from half a lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of lemon extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Frosting 

  • 2 3/4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 5 tablespoons evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Prepare the cake mix according to directions. Add in the pudding mix and the rest of the ingredients. Bake according to the directions on the cake box mix.

For the frosting:

In a medium bowl, sift together the confectioners sugar and the cocoa powder. In a large bowl, cream butter until smooth then gradually mix in sugar mixture alternately with evaporated milk. Blend in vanilla. Beat until fluffy.

When the cake is cool enough to touch, frost the cake on all sides.
