If you are looking for a lemon cake that is moist and bursting with lemony goodness, then this is the cake for you. The lemon flavor is derived from the cake mix, lemon pudding mix and the 7-UP. I am sure you could use another lemon lime beverage, but I prefer 7-UP. In less than 10 minutes this cake can be in the oven. Give this super easy recipe a try and I am sure it will be a family favorite.

Pour the mixture into a bundt or tube pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 -55 minutes. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean when the cake is done. (Photo B)
Let the cake sit for 10 minutes and then remove from the pan and cool on a wire rack. (Photo C)
