Lemon Goodness Cake

I saw this recipe on WE EAT and was trying to find and excuse to make it when our friends Leslie and Ryan invited us over for dinner! I told them I would bring dessert and was so excited to try this! It lived up to my expectations and everyone loved it! It's the perfect summer dessert, so refreshing!

1 pkg. white cake mix (and ingredients to prepare according to mix directions)
1 fresh lemon, zested and juiced
1/2 can lemon pie filling

1/2 can lemon pie filling
1 (8 oz.) tub cool whip, thawed
1 lemon, zested and juiced

Heat oven to 350. Prepare the cake according to the box and add in the lemon zest and juice. Put 2/3 of the cake batter in the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan. Drop small spoon fulls of lemon filling into the batter (remember to only use half of the can). Top with remaining batter. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes and allow the cake to fully cool. Fold together cool whip, lemon pie filling, zest and lemon juice. Spread over cooled cake. Keep refrigerated.


  1. OH, and it was SO yummy! Perfect choice for a summer night!

  2. Ooh, had I just not made a TON of sweet stuff, I'd make this in a second. I'm going to have to keep in on my agenda. Pretty site! Good to see another adventurous cook! :)
