Is it cold where you are? It has been here! An early Alberta clipper brought the chilly weather down on us a little while ago and we are finally seeing our way out of it. Thankfully we did not have all of the snow and bad weather, just windy and cold!
If you want a dessert that will knock the chill off a winter weekend, try a Warm Winter Lemon Cake. It is easy, almost “semi-homemade”easy!
1 pkg yellow cake mix
1 1/3 cups water
1/3 cup oil
2 cups cold milk
1 1/4 cups additional water
2 pkg (4 serving size) lemon flavored instant pudding mix
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cake batter as directed on the package. Pour into a greased 13×9” baking pan. (Since I was taking this dish to 2 different places, I used 2 8” square pans. The cake turned out just fine.) Set aside.
Pour milk and 1 1/4 cups of water into a large bowl. Add dry pudding mixes and granulated sugar. Beat with a wire whisk for 2 minutes or until well blended. Pour over cake batter.
Place baking dish(es) on a rimmed baking sheet to catch any sauce that might bubble over the sides. Bake 55-60 minutes or until wooden toothpick inserted in center of cake layer comes out clean. Cool for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Spoon into serving dishes while warm. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator. Just warm and enjoy!
