Lemonade Cake

A couple of weeks ago I found a recipe for Lemonade Cake! I love lemonade so the whole idea of a lemonade cake totally appealed to me. I gave the recipe a try and it was as good as I imagined it would be!

The ingredients are simple and it was easy to assemble.

The cake is really moist, with a great lemony flavor! There is even lemonade in the cream cheese icing!

I kept the cake refrigerated until I served it and it was sooooo delicious!

If you like lemonade you have to give this recipe a try! I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Lemonade Cake with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

1 Lemon boxed cake mix (I used Betty Crocker)
4 eggs
1 1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 Tbsp Lemonade from concentrate

2 Tbsp Lemonade from concentrate
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp water

8 oz block 1/3 less fat cream cheese
1/2 cup room temp butter (1 stick)
3 Tbsp Lemonade from concentrate
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
5 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350°

Spray 2 8" round cake pans generously with cooking/baking spray.

In mixer, beat all your ingredients on low for 30 seconds and then on medium for 2 minutes.

Keep the remaining frozen lemonade concentrate in the will need it again.

Bake according to package directions until cake is set and toothpick comes out clean.

Let the cakes cool in pan...about an hour. Do not remove.

When the cakes are cooled level them off so they are flat on top.

Poke holes in cake that wasn't cut using a fork.

Make your glaze. In a medium bowl combine powdered sugar, lemonade and water.
Stir until smooth.

Pour equally over the top of the cakes..still in the cake pans.

Cover and let sit for at least an hour, but overnight is best in refrigerator.

Make your frosting. Cream butter and cream cheese together until combined.
With mixer on low add your lemonade and vanilla.
Slowly add in your powdered sugar and then beat on medium for 1-2 minutes until smooth.

When ready to frost remove your cakes from the refrigerator.
Loosen cake around the edges with a butter knife so they will release easily.

Frost as desired.
