Sunny's notes for this recipe:
My mom always made her own box mixes for her! Then one day, she saw the lemon cake mix in the store and added all these wonderful ingredients.
Here it is!

Sunny, I just took this awesome cake out of the oven and it looks absolutely delicious....I did not add 1/3 cup of sugar to the pudding...I prefer it less sweet. I hope you don't mind. Hugs, Marie

DH and I will try it after lunch!
