I love experimenting with cake mixes, by adding different flavors, and other ingredients. I had a yellow cake mix in the cupboard, so I went through the fridge, freezer, and cupboards to see what I could do with the cake mix. That's how this cake came about. My granddaughter and daughter loved it and so they named it for me. I am Meme (grandma) and this is my Lemon Sunshine Cake! It might make you pucker, but it's a good pucker!
3Set aside the powdered sugar and the 1/2 cup lemon juice.
4In mixing bowl combine the remaining ingredients. With mixer on low speed mix until all ingredients are incorporated. Pour into bundt pan and bake for 45-50 minutes. (time may vary according to your oven)
5Meantime combine the powdered sugar 1/2 cup lemon juice and 2 tsps lemon zest. The mixture should be a bit runny so it will soak into the cake.
6When the cake is done, let cool for 10 minutes then turn out on a cooling rack. While cake is still warm take the end of a wooden spoon or a skewer, and poke holes in the cake. Place a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil under the cooling rack and gradually spoon the lemon mixture over the cake. When cake has cooled sprinkle with powdered sugar.
7*I have also spooned the lemon mixture onto the bottom of the cake before I turn it out.
