This is one of the most DELICIOUS cakes I have ever made.
I saw it originally on Pinterest and I wrote it down on my ‘Must Make List’.
Also, one of the easiest too! It is literally bursting with Lemon!
The ones I saw on there, were made from boxed cake mix though,
I personally prefer to make things from scratch when I can, and this is one of them!
I really believe there is a HUGE difference in the taste, it’s just better when you do it from scratch!
I know sometimes it is just faster and easier to do a cake mix and trust me,
I use my fair share when I’m in a hurry!
So, for that reason, I am going to add BOTH recipes here.
and let you choose whichever suits you best! 🙂
I know some of you may be thinking… SODA? In a cake?
Trust me, it is fantastic! If you have ever tried Coca-Cola Cake you already know 😉
The soda basically makes the cake ultra moist and gives it a great flavor as well.
ANY lemon-Lime soda will work.
The Sweet Lemon throughout is just incredible.
Reminds me of sunshine on a plate! …covered in delicious tangy icing send it over the top!
