Lemon Pudding Cake

Patricia J.


Mom got this recipe from a friend of hers whose daughter was a high school classmate of mine. Everyone fell in love with it. You can't tell the vegetable oil is in the glaze, but it really makes a difference. She has given out this recipe many times. I have been baking it for 50 years and everyone continues to love it...and I continue to give out the recipe! If you are a lemon lover then this is the cake for you.
