The Cake Mix Doctor

Step by Step Instructions

Step One: Preheat Oven and Prepare Bundt Pan

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease the bundt pan you are using with cooking spray.

Step Two: Combine Cake Mix, Lemon Gelatin, Water, Vegetable Oil, and Eggs

In a large mixing bowl, add the yellow cake mix, lemon gelatin, water, vegetable oil, and eggs. Using an electric mixer, beat the lemon cake batter mixture on low speed for 30 seconds until combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula and beat the cake batter for one more minute, increasing the speed to medium.

Step Three: Bake the Cake

Pour the lemon cake batter into the bundt pan. Bake the lemon bundt cake for 35-40 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Allow the cake to cool in the bundt cake pan for 10 minutes before letting it cool on a wire rack. To remove the cake from the pan, run a knife around the edge to help loosen it, then invert it onto the wire rack.

Store this cake in an airtight container at room temperature for two to three days. In addition, you can also store this lemon cake in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.

This lemon bundt cake can also be frozen as well. Wrap it in a layer of plastic wrap and a layer of aluminum foil and place it in the fridge for up to six months. Once ready to serve, allow it to thaw in the fridge overnight or at room temperature on the counter for around two hours.

To help prevent the glaze from getting everywhere, pour it on the cake while it is still on the wire rack with a piece of parchment paper underneath. This allows for an easy clean-up, as you simply throw away the parchment paper after pouring the glaze, preventing you from having to clean up a messy counter.

If desired, you can make a regular glaze instead of a lemon one. Simply use milk or heavy cream instead of lemon juice and replace the lemon zest with vanilla extract. This will taste just as delicious atop your cake as the lemon glaze does.

This lemon cake tastes wonderful on its own or served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. In addition, you can also serve it with fresh strawberries, as they taste amazing when paired together. You can even drizzle the cake with strawberry sauce as well for an extra special treat.
