My Naked Lemon cakes have become a very desired recipe so I’m going to share this recipe that my family LOVES! It’s so easy that you are going to be shocked! In the ingredients for my lemon cake you will see that I’m using Betty Crockers boxed lemon cake mix which I doctor up. I also love to cover my Lemon cakes with buttercream frosting!
You may be thinking….”OH MY GOSH The Hutch Oven is using box cake mix?” but let me tell you, this lemon cake is so yummy, moist and fluffy that you must try it. I am not a snob to doctored box mixes. This is still homemade and you are putting as much into baking this cake as you would if you made one completely from scratch. Give yourself a break sometimes 😉
I like to use Wilton bake even strips on my cake rounds for even baking and a flat tops. You may need to trim a little off to make your cake flat. You will want to thinly slice your lemons and use any kind of greenery. You may have the greenery you need right in your back yard 😉
You can use any buttercream recipe but here is a link to mine on my Hallmark Home and Family segment
I added a video at the bottom to show you how easy it was to assemble my lemon naked cake. You can fully frost your lemon cake like the first photo I used or keep it naked. Either way, it’s lemon so…
