For Father's Day I decided to make my mother's Lemon Pound Cake. The only reason I call it my mother's is because she used to make it for every special occasion or family get together. It's actually a recipe straight off the Duncan Hines Lemon Cake mix box. And since I found a square tube pan at a yard sale recently for only $1 I made it square. Mama never had a square cake. And she never glazed the cake.
1 box of Duncan Hines Lemon Cake mix (I think you could use any lemon cake mix)
1 box of Jello instant lemon pudding
1/3 cup oil
1 cup water
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix with electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour batter into a greased and buttered tube pan. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
For the glaze I just mixed a little confectioner's sugar with some lemon juice and milk.
Next time I will make a couple of changes. 1. I will add some lemon juice to the water. I thought it could have a little bit more lemon flavor. 2. I will use only lemon juice with the confectioner's sugar to make the glaze.
The cake was really good without the changes but I just wanted a little more lemon flavor.
Have a great day!
