How to Make Luscious Lemonade Cake
- Follow directions on cake mix for amount of eggs, oil and water. Add 1 small container vanilla yogurt (individual portion size). Add 2 tablespoons lemon juice, either fresh squeezed (preferred) or from bottle (not concentrated).
Pour cake mix into 2 round cake pans, and follow directions on box; generally around 28 minutes. If your oven runs hot; turn oven down to 325 degrees. You will smell the cake as it is getting done. You may also use 9x13 pan; adjust time according to box directions. Cool cake completely. For round cake, "dust" off any loose crumbs.
