I’ve been in the mood for lemon lately. It must be my desire for warmer weather. I like sweet lemon desserts, not the tart kind, unlike the rest of my family. My Man and all my kidlets LOVE tart lemon desserts. Not me. So when I saw this easy recipe from Duncan Hines for quick Lemon Pound Cake I knew this would satisfy my craving for sweet lemon in a jiffy. Sometimes I need a quick recipe for gatherings or family nights and that’s where these kind of easy cake box recipes come in. This easy lemon pound cake is a little fancier than your typical cake mix cake. So give it and try and make sure you check out my newest recipe video (you guys, I can’t believe I actually made a recipe video!!!). You’ll be tasting that sweet lemon flavor in less 45 mins . . .

Here’s what you will need for this lemon pound cake recipe. I used Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme cake mix. Delicious.
Quick Lemon Pound Cake
1 box lemon cake mix (16.5 oz)
1 cup water
1/3 cup oil (I used olive oil)
1 box lemon instant pudding (3.4 oz)
1/4 cup powdered sugar, if desired
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine the cake mix, water, oil, eggs, and pudding mix. Mix well with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes. Pour batter into well greased baking pans. Bread pans or bundt cake pans work nicely. Bake for 30-40 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean–depends on your oven and pan size. Mine took 30 minutes with batter divided into 2 bread pans. Cool completely before slicing. Dust with powdered sugar.
