Perfect Lemon Cake

Recipe Courtesy of Melonie at My Kitchen Cafe

Bella loves a Perfect Lemon Cupcake...

1 package lemon cake mix
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup oil
4 eggs
1 small package lemon instant pudding

Mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients. Mix with electric mixer on medium speed for about two minutes. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan or two round pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. To make into cupcakes, fill cupcake papers 2/3 full and bake them at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. The cupcakes will fall after they come out of the oven, but this is normal. Don't over bake or the cake will be too dry.

3 ways to top the cake:

Lemon Frosting

Cream Cheese Frosting

And... my personal favorite way to make this cake:

topped with a lemon glaze and covered with fresh strawberries!
