I don’t know who shared this wonderful recipe and note. Even so, I like her. It’s written on plain note paper by hand. Hope you love her too, whoever she may be.
1 lb 3 oz Yellow Cake Mix (not deluxe)
1 Pkg Instant Lemon Pudding
3/4 C. Corn Oil
3/4 Cup Water
1/4 tsp Grated lemon or orange peel
Beat eggs, add all ingredients & blend well.
Bake on bottom shelf in tube pan. Turn out on rack & dust with
powdered sugar. Bake at 350 deg. 40-45 min.
(this is a very good but not sickening rich frosting.)
1/2 C. Crisco
1/2 Cup Butter
1 Cup Sugar
3 tsp Vanilla
1/2 Cup Hot Milk
1 Egg White
Mix well add hot milk to beaten egg white then combine all ingredients & beat till frothy. Coconut may be sprinkled over top of frosting or shaved semi sweet choc is very nice.
I have used the Deluxe package for the Lemon Cake & it turns out o.k. too altho the plain package seems a little lighter textured cake.
This frosting keeps nicely for several days….providing the cake lasts that long. Ha!
