Ice Box Lemon Drop Cake Recipe @pinch

This is one of the moistest lemon cakes we've ever had! (We attribute that to the addition of the buttermilk... along with the TLC that goes into the prep.) It almost has a creamy texture reminding us of a firm custard. An easy cake to throw together for a potluck or when you want a yummy dessert. Perfect for a fresh finish to any meal. My grandmother made a delicious, moist lemon cake like this from scratch years ago. It was my favorite. Now, with time as a rare ingredient in my kitchen, I use a box cake mix and add a few things of my own to make the same great taste my grandmother created. The lemon juice in the icing gives the cake such a "fresh" taste. It's rich so perhaps you can get 15 pieces out of a 9x13 because a small piece goes a long way. It's a favorite with a men's group my husband has a meeting at our home each week. They love it.

  • Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes (check cake at 35 minutes). It will require a couple of minutes longer baking time than cake mix box calls for because of the extra moisture produced by the milk. Stick a toothpick in the center to check for doneness.
  • ICING: Combine water
  • oil
  • powdered sugar
  • and lemon juice with a mixer until smooth. Add one more tablespoon of water if consistency isn't saucy.
  • Glaze the cake when just a little cooled. Do not over glaze it because the icing is sweet. Just a THIN layer is required. If there is icing left over
  • store in the fridge and just stir it really good to use again.
  • Store cake in the fridge and serve cold or room temp.
