Plus, lemon just shouts Spring to me! BTW: Did you happen to see my Spring Home Tour last week, where I brought the outside in? You’ll see a bowl of lemons sitting on my kitchen island! Lemons (and other fruits) are a great, inexpensive way to add some spring to your home décor – and all I had to do was ransack my fridge! You can read and see more of my Spring Home Tour, along with a few of my blogger friends, HERE.

Back to my delicious, moist lemon ring cake…
If you’re in the mood for a light and fresh cake, one that’s perfect for spring, this moist lemon ring cake is perfect for you! Your family will love biting into a piece of the cake with that extra tasty WOW lemon pie filling.
And this cake is really easy because it starts with a box of yellow cake mix. That’s right, you read it correctly! Feel free to make the cake from scratch, but I prefer the easy cake mix in a box route! haha
Moist Lemon Ring Cake
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 T butter to grease cake pan
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 3.4 oz package instant lemon pudding
- 3 eggs
- Lemon pie filling I like Duncan Hines brand
- 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
- 2-3 T lemon juice
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 2-3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice.
Preheat oven to 350°F
Grease an angel food cake pan with butter.
In a large bowl, whip cake mix, oil, orange juice and instant pudding together until smooth.
Add 3 eggs one at a time, beating after each egg.
Pour batter into the well-greased angel food pan.
Using a pastry bag, pipe a ring of Lemon pie filling on top of the batter.
Bake at 350°F for 50 minutes.
Remove the side of the pan, leaving the center and cake intact to cool for 3 minutes on a cooling rack and immediately begin the glaze.
To make the glaze, mix the confectioner’s sugar and 2 Tablespoons lemon juice together until smooth. Add another Tablespoon of lemon juice to thin out, if necessary.
Brush glaze over the top of the cake.
Note: My family likes to put the finished cake in the fridge – and then cut off large sliver pieces for days! Enjoy…
