Lemon Cake with a Lemon Glaze

 


My husband loves all things lemon and for years bugged me to find a lemon cake recipe.  Not being a huge fan of lemon I didn't really care to find one.  One year he was working out of town in Colorado for a month and was coming home right after Father's Day.  I decided to try and find a lemon cake to make for him.  I stumbled across a few recipes but they were just so elaborate I just didn't have the time.  I headed to the store and found a boxed lemon cake mix.  Then I spotted the supreme lemon frosting but I decided I want something with more of a glaze texture so I decided to experiment a little..

First I started off baking the cake per the box directions and poured it into a fluted pan.

Once the cake is done let cool for about 5 minutes and transfer to a plate or cake stand lined with parchment paper.


I then placed the jar of frosting in the microwave and heated it up for about 20 seconds.  The frosting should be nice and runny.  I then slowly drizzled the frosting over the cake with a spoon.  I like to slowly do this a little at a time so the frosting has a chance to absorb into the cake a little.  What's nice about this recipe is you don't have let the cake cool very long and if you are impatient like me that is an amazing thing. I like to use the entire can of frosting so that it's completely covered and then carefully remove the wax paper.

 

I hope you try these super easy recipe and enjoy it as much as my family does.  It is so moist and delicious and just the right amount of lemon flavor.

Thanks for stopping by Christine:)
