Bursting with the bright flavor of citrus, our lemon Bundt cake mix makes it easy to bake a moist, tender lemon cake that tastes as wonderful as it looks. Decorating your home-baked cake couldn’t be easier. A sprinkling of confectioners’ sugar is all you need.


  • 16 Tbs. (2 sticks) (8 oz./250 g) unsalted butter
  • 1 package lemon Bundt cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cups (11 fl. oz./340 ml) milk
  • Confectioners’ sugar for dusting (optional)


Have all the ingredients at room temperature.

Position a rack in the lower third of an oven and preheat to 350°F (180°C). Grease and flour a 10-cup (2.5-l) Bundt pan.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the flat beater, beat the butter on medium-high speed until fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes. Stop the mixer, add 1 cup of the cake mix and beat on medium speed until smooth, about 1 minute.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the remaining cake mix and the milk and beat until all of the mix is moistened, about 1 minute.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 60 to 65 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool for 15 minutes, then invert the pan onto the rack and let the cake cool completely.

Dust with confectioners’ sugar immediately before serving. Serves 16.
