It's a beautiful day here in Tennessee. The sun is shining, the leaves are falling, and I thought it would be a great day to bake a Lemon Glazed Cake. It is a good time to try out some Lemon Lime Soda made from my Soda Stream Soda Maker . I mentioned Soda Stream on another recent post.
I was in the middle of making the cake when I realized I didn't have any lemon lime soda on hand, which prior to having the Soda Stream Soda Maker would have made my Lemon Glazed Cake a flop. In about 30 seconds I was able to whip up a liter of lemon lime soda. I only needed a cup so when Riley gets home from school he will be able to have his favorite soda with a wrap before he's off to his basketball game. I thought I would post the Lemon Glazed Cake Recipe for anyone who would like to give it a try. The cost is about .22 per serving. The economical cost of this cake puts a big smile on my face when I see how much my whole family enjoys it.
Glazed Lemon Cake
1 package (18-1/4 oz.) white cake mix
1 package (3.4 oz) instant lemon pudding mix
3/4 vegetable oil (I use applesauce)
3 eggs (I use 1 whole egg and 2 egg whites)
1 cup of lemon-lime soda
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2Tbsp. lemon juice
In a mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mix, oil (applesauce) and eggs. Beat on medium speed for 1 minute. Gradually beat in soda. Pour batter into 9x13 greased baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched in center.
Combine confectioners' sugar and lemon juice until smooth, carefully spread over warm cake cool on a wire rack. Yield: 12 servings (.22 per servings)
