 Lemon Cake

This moist and delicious recipe name is actually Marge’s Lemon Cake. It’s named after my dear friend Regina’s mom Marge and it’s her mothers’ original recipe. Regina has kept up the tradition by making it for her family like her mom did for all their family events.

 

This cake is one that Marge would  bring to every family event.

As Regina said, “It brings back some great memories each time I make it.”  

I also love the classics from our family members.

Sometimes the most simple and basic recipes are the best ones that everyone enjoys so much.

Using a cake mix and some added ingredients makes this cake very different from just another boxed cake mix.

There is one special ingredients that you would never guess would be in a lemon cake but, it just works so well to bring this cake to whole new level of delicious. 

This is for sure one special cake and so easy to make.  A winner!

Thanks to Regina for sharing it!

Just a note, you may want to serve with berries and whipped cream, as seen in the photo Regina took.

Fresh whip cream over a piece of this cake, oh yea!  Looks beautiful and tastes great together.

Of course the cake tastes amazing on it’s own too.

Anyway you serve this outstanding cake is the right way. Make this a tradition with your family, it’s worth it!
