Awesome Lemon Pudding Cake
If you like lemon flavor your going to love this cake. It is rich in lemon flavor and super moist. Yes it goes perfect with coffee... well most everything goes perfect with coffee. This could very well became a family favorite.
Doing these Hub articles has been fantastic in reminding me of family times, good food and happy memories from childhood to current memories. This recipe for the Lemon Pudding Cake comes from my Aunt Pat, also my God Mother we share the same middle name. Anyway, Aunt Pat got this recipe from her sister-in-law Ruth (no not named after her, after my grandmother).
Aunt Pat started to make this cake years and years ago. She would do this for family gatherings, Christmas, Thanksgiving, parties. If she didn't make it then thank goodness Ruth would. On the very rare times they both didn't make it we would be sure to go out of our way (with good humor of course) to make them feel badly about it.
One of my favorite Christmas memories is that Aunt Pat made a separate cake just for the cousins. We sat around at a little card table with forks and spoons in hand chowing down on that cake. If I remember correctly it was gone in about a half an hour. Yes we all crashed and burned from the sugar high, it was so worth it! Gratefully being young we all had the metabolism to deal with all that sugar. Thanks to my aunt it was a perfectly sweet Christmas.
Now that my Aunt Pat is getting older the Lemon Pudding Cake doesn't always show up. Can't blame her she has been making it for years. Suppose now it is up to me or one of my cousins to carry on the tradition. I will happily do so. I am a little sad however that I no longer have the metabolism to handle chowing down a whole cake with a few cousins. I must be honest that some how the cake doesn't taste the same when Aunt Pat doesn't make it. I guess that is to be expected.
My friends also love this cake. They ask me to make it for all kinds of parties and gatherings. Graduations, birthdays as an extra dessert, cookouts and holiday parties. When I was working in an office I would get requests there also for a Friday treat. When we had going away parties for follow workers moving on. Those where perfect occasions for bringing in the lemon pudding cake.
Ok so lets get this recipe down. It is very easy to do, and doesn't take much preparation time.
Lemon Pudding Cake:
Box Lemon Cake Mix
One Package of instant lemon pudding mix
3/4 cup cooking oil (vegetable is fine)
3/4 cup water
Beat oil and water for two minutes. Blend in cake mix and instant pudding. Add four eggs, beat until blended.
Bake for one hour at 350 degrees in an ungreased angel food tube pan. Don't over bake.
Mix two cups confectioners sugar
1/2 cup of real lemon juice
2 tablespoons of water.
Ten minutes after the cake is baked invert it on to a dish and add the topping mixture to the top of the cake. You can spoon it on or drizzle it on. The lemon mixture that gathers at the bottom of the plate you can spoon back up on to the top of the cake so more soaks in. You wont get it all to soak in. The left over juice will soak into the bottom of the cake. So rich and yummy.
I'm sure you have guessed that the best part of this cake is the bottom not the top.
If you decided to try this cake out with a family get together or any gathering. Be warned the cake is a bit sticky, use caution while traveling. It is so worth the extra caution and hopefully it will become a family and friend favorite.
For the love of family, friends, good food and good times keep baking!
