Gather Your Ingredients for Lemony Bliss:

  • The Cake Base:
    • 1 box yellow cake mix (your favorite brand will work wonders here)
    • 1 small box instant lemon pudding mix (adds a delightful lemon flavor and helps the cake stay moist)
    • 1 ½ cups 7-Up (lemon-lime soda) – the secret ingredient for a light and citrusy cake
    • 4 eggs
    • ¾ cup vegetable oil
  • The Sweet Finishing Touch:
    • 2 cups powdered sugar (for a light and fluffy glaze)
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (balances the sweetness and adds a touch of pucker)
    • 2 tablespoons milk (adjust for desired glaze consistency)

Step-by-Step Guide to Lemony Perfection:

  1. Prep for Perfection: Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C). Generously grease a 10-inch bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray to ensure the cake slides out effortlessly later.
  2. Simple Assembly: In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, combine the cake mix, instant lemon pudding mix, 7-Up, eggs, and vegetable oil. Mix until all the ingredients are well combined, and the batter is smooth and light.
  3. Baking to Bundt Perfection: Pour the batter evenly into your prepared bundt pan. Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick or fork inserted into the center comes out clean.
  4. Cooling and Unmolding: Allow the cake to cool completely in the pan before attempting to remove it. Once cool, gently invert the pan onto a serving plate to release the beautiful bundt cake shape.
  5. Glaze Magic: While the cake cools, prepare your glaze. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and lemon juice until you have a smooth consistency. Gradually add the milk, one tablespoon at a time, until you reach your desired glaze consistency. You want it to be pourable but not too thin.
  6. The Finishing Touch: Drizzle the glaze generously over the cooled cake, allowing it to cascade down the sides. The glaze will set as it sits, creating a beautiful sheen.
