Delicious Lemon Pudding Cake

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.

4 Eggs

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.)

Sander’s 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!

The future is right ahead of me. At the age of 85, all new projects are interesting.Memories and friends of the past are with me every day. I love to share my thoughts along with comments and opinions (of course) of this day and today's times and challenges. Photography is my hobby. Although I haven't done many photos of people, I've found there are photo challenges in every direction. Born and raised in Michigan, the peaceful woods and wildlife have always attracted me. Graduating from high school in 1953, college was of no interest to me. My Dad used to say, "some folks get a college education and may still not have enough sense to come in out of the rain." That's always been enough for me because I do, have that much sense, about the rain. I have learned one important fact about life. Old isn't as old as I always thought it was.
