Easy Lemon Cake

It was my turn to host Bunco this month. For dessert I made my Mom's lemon cake. It is always a hit, and is so easy to make! 
When life hands you lemons, make lemon cake! This is one of my favorite cakes. My mother first made this cake when I was in high school. I have fond memories of eating it on summer picnics, but it's good any time of the year!

Cake Ingredients:
1 box lemon cake mix
1 small box instant lemon pudding
4 eggs
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup oil

Juice of 2 small lemons + zest (finely grated yellow peel of lemon)
2 cups powdered sugar
Mix well.

Combine all ingredients for cake and mix well with electric mixer for 2 minutes. Spray a bundt pan with Pam. Pour cake batter into pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

When cake is done, remove from oven and invert on to a plate. Poke holes in cake with a skewer or toothpick.   While cake is still warm, pour half of lemon topping over cake. Let cool about 10 minutes and pour remaining topping over cake.
