Lemon Sour Cream Cake

This is delicious. I posted the frosting recipe I made it with, and it is awesome, but I also think this cake would be awesome with pudding frosting made with lemon pudding. (recipe on blog) -Kristin

1 box lemon cake mix
1 c. sour cream
3/4 c. water
3/4 c. oil
4 eggs
1 small package lemon instant pudding

1 c. butter, softened
4 c. powdered sugar
1/4 c. fresh lemon juice (juice from one lemon)
1 t. packed grated lemon zest

  • Preheat oven to 350 and grease 2 cake rounds or a 9x13 pan.
  • Mix together all ingredients on first row and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  • Pour batter into cake pans and bake for 25-30 minutes being careful to not over bake.
  • Remove from oven, set aside and let cool completely.
  • Beat softened butter and 4 c. of the powdered sugar; beat well and add remaining ingredients. If you want thicker frosting, add more powdered sugar till desired consistency. I thought 4 cups was perfect.

  • Frost when cake is completely cooled.

  • Garnish with raspberries if desired.
