Tips & Tricks:

  • Powdered Sugar: While you are letting the cake rest, sprinkle the powdered sugar over the cake with a fine mesh strainer : https://amzn.to/2XvjeVN
    • it’ll melt into the cake while it’s cooling and make it extra delicious
  • Lemon Zest: zest a whole lemon. Use half in the cake and the other half use as a garnish when you serve each slice.
  • Serve with: Serve with a dollop of cool whip or whipped cream and add lemon zest over top the whipped cream. Magnificent!
  • Mix: Mix with a simple spoon. Start in the center of the bowl, making small circles in the middle so the cake mix doesn’t get all over the place. As it combines start making larger circles with the spoon until it is all combined! It only takes about 3 minutes to combine.
  • Cookware: Bake in a 9 x 13 Pyrex or baking dish: https://amzn.to/3jVn3Ls
