Ingredients

Cake:

  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
  • 1 (4.3 ounce) package non-instant lemon pudding mix
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 6 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

Icing:

  • 2 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, or more to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 loaf pans.
  2. Combine cake mix, pudding mix, oil, eggs, sour cream, milk, and 6 tablespoons lemon juice into bowl of stand mixer; beat for 2 minutes and pour into prepared loaf pans.
