Lemon Creme Cake – Perfect for Mothers Day

Written by Lyndi. Posted in Recipes

IMG_3298 I wanted to figure out how to make a delicious, moist, easy and light lemon cake recipe.  I played around and came up with this and I love it because it doesn't have a strong lemon taste.  The lemon is only in the frosting, so it gives it the perfect flavor.  I doubled the recipe to make it into a large 3 layer cake...it was huge and completely delicious!! 


Lemon Creme Cake 

1 box yellow cake mix

1 small pkg Jello instant vanilla pudding mix

1 cup sour cream

1 cup butter

4 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup milk

1 tsp vanilla

3/4 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a very large bowl, mix together everything. Batter will be thick.  Pour batter into 2, 8 or 9 inch round pans.  For cooking time, I cook them for about 30-40 minutes…depending on your oven.  


Lemon Butter Cream Frosting

1 cup butter 

4 cups powdered sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

juice from 1 large or 2 small fresh lemons

lemon zest

In a mixing bowl, cream butter. Add sugar and continue creaming until well blended. Add salt, vanilla, whipping cream and lemon juice. Blend on low speed until moistened. Beat at high speed until frosting is fluffy.

Spread frosting in between all the layers, then all over the top...I added a lemon slice and raspberries to make it pretty.
