This dessert delivers deliciously tart and sweet flavors by combining lemon cake mix, lemon pudding mix, and even a sugar-based lemon drink mix (or frozen lemonade concentrate, if you prefer).
The vintage inspiration: Jell-O’s pudding lemonade cake recipe from 1977
For one of the most lemony lemon cakes you can make, bake a Jello pudding lemonade cake. It’s a deliciously light and moist triple lemon treat.
And the recipe is simple. Start with your regular lemon cake mix. Mix in Jell-O Lemon Flavor Pudding for more moistness and lemon flavor. Then top it off with a luscious lemonade glaze.
So make a really lemony lemonade cake. After it rises, you’ll shine.

I use to make this cake in the late 70s and 80s and misplaced the recipe. Will be making it again soon.
