Hello to all of you Whatever Dee-Dee Wants readers! We are Julie and Maddie from Tastes of Lizzy T. We’re a mother & daughter duo who love to spend time creating and learning together in the kitchen. Baking is relaxing and fun for us, so we always have something in the oven! Typically when we think of baking a treat we head towards the chocolate. After all, chocolate cures everything, right? It's in this spring time of year that we start thinking lemon desserts. We love lemon desserts. They are quite the opposite of the rich, chocolate delicacies that we so enjoy, but there's just something fresh about the flavor of lemon that we start craving as the weather warms.
Today we're sharing with you a Lemon Pound Cake. You're going to love this pound cake because it starts with a boxed cake mix and a small package of Jello. I love cake mix recipes because they provide such a great base for so many amazing recipes. And the lemon Jell-O gives a blast of lemon flavor that will make your taste buds smile. Don't forget the lemon glaze that gets drizzled on top of this cake. My kids said that is what made it unbelievably good. Allow this cake to cool completely before serving. In fact, this is a great cake to make a day in advance. Although I must admit that the last time we made this, it didn't make it through the day!
Enjoy this refreshing, light dessert this spring!
