A Super Easy Lemonade Cake Recipe

Lemon flavored sweets come to my mind when spring and summer arrive. The sweet and tart flavors make me feel bight and warm. It reminds me of summer so much.

Since summer is coming to an end here soon, I really wanted to enjoy the sweet and tarty flavors of these warm seasons before autumn arrives. So, I decided to make this super easy lemonade cake.

To make this super easy lemonade cake you only need a few ingredients:

  • A box of lemon or yellow cake mix
  • Frozen lemonade concentrate
  • Powdered sugar
  • Ingredients to make the frosting

You can take it a step further and make this recipe even simpler by purchasing fluffy white or fluffy lemon frosting instead!

Another thing I love about this cake is you can bake it ahead of time. The cake can be chilled for a while and stored covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days ahead of time.

Now it’s time to bake this cool and refreshing cake. You’ll love the sweet and tarty flavors of lemon. Bake away!
