Bright-colored and beautiful, this lemony cake is proof that an eye-catching dessert doesn’t have to be complicated. Starting with a box of Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ yellow cake mix and flavored with zingy lemon juice, this vibrant treat only takes 8 ingredients and 20 minutes of prep time–talk about easy! Right before baking, the tender citrusy cake is studded with juicy raspberries resulting in a dreamy spring treat that’s worthy of being served at all of your spring parties. Add a drizzle of sweet vanilla frosting for a dazzling final touch!
1 medium lemon yields about 3 tablespoons juice and 2 to 3 teaspoons grated lemon peel.
Serve each slice with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for an extra sweet touch.
If you’re looking for a stronger lemon flavor, try experimenting with adding a little extra grated lemon peel to the cake.
For a whole new look and flavor, try experimenting with different spring berries. Blueberries or sliced strawberries are a great place to start.
