A light moist cake. Duncan Hines used to put a recipe like this on the back of their Lemon Supreme cake mix back in the 60s. Cake mixes have changed so much my old recipe just didn't do well. This year I found a recipe that worked with the new cake mixes. If you prefer a less sweet dessert, this cake is perfect as it has a lemon glaze rather than icing.

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a 10” tube or Bundt pan. I use Baker’s Joy spray.
