This has been the poster week for Utah weather. Shorts and t-shirts on Monday, ski jackets and Ugg boots on Wednesday, leggings and crochet sweaters on Friday. Yep that sounds about right. The mid-week storm brought a good 24 hours of snow in but the sun popped out on Thursday and poof! snow-be-gone.

Happens all the time.

I have to say that snowy days make excellent excuses for baking all day long. I ended up creating three new (totally amazing) cake recipes for a church youth group fundraiser. In other words my kitchen was a disaster but the house smelled of nummy sweet things and my belly was full of cake.

Not a bad day if you ask me.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Cooling Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
Servings: 8

Ingredients

  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1 3.4 ounce box instant lemon pudding mix
  • 1 cup plain or vanilla greek yogurt (may sub sour cream)
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons poppyseeds

Glaze

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice*
  • 3-4 tablespoons milk, or as needed*
  • optional: sprinkles

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350. Heavily grease a bundt pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl whisk together cake mix and pudding mix. Add sour cream, vegetable oil, eggs, and warm water and mix until all ingredients are incorporated. Stir in poppy seeds.
  • Pour cake batter into prepared baking pan and bake for 40-50 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool 30-45 minutes before inverting cake onto a cooling rack.
  • For the glaze, mix together powdered sugar, lemon juice, and milk (start with 3 tablespoons and add more as needed until glaze is pourable). Drizzle glaze over cooled cake. Top with sprinkles if desired. Store covered at room temperature.

Notes

*I also love to use an almond glaze for this cake instead of lemon. Skip the lemon juice and add 1 1/4 teaspoons almond extract. Add just enough milk for the glaze to be pourable.
Prep time does not involve cooling time for cake

Cake mixes changed their weight a couple years ago. How many ounces cake mix did you use – 15 or 18?

    It was 15.25!
