Easy and Delicious Lemon Cake

My husband’s grandmother used to make him a lemon cake for his birthday.  He loved it and her so much.  (She was a great, Godly example to he and his brothers and was an amazing prayer warrior.)  This year, for his birthday, I decided to make my husband a lemon cake.  I’m not the great baker that his grandmother was, so I had to cut a few corners.  Even still, the reaction I got from the cake told me that it was still delicious and a recipe that I will definitely use again.

I bought a Betty Crocker Super Moist Lemon Cake Mix and prepared it according to the package directions.


For the frosting, I used a recipe I found on www.allrecipes.com

Lemon Frosting Recipe:


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups confectioners’ sugar


  1. Combine the butter, lemon juice, vanilla, and confectioner’s sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add more confectioner’s sugar, or lemon juice to adjust the consistency as needed.
