Lemonade Cake Recipe

Summer is almost over. But before it has ended, I wanted to make a refreshing, summery treat to share with my family. We are always getting together for BBQs and picnics. What better treat to bring than this Lemonade Cake recipe?

I was not sure how this cake would turn out, but ask my family, and they will tell you how refreshing, moist, and delicious it is. Perfect for a summertime treat!

This recipe is super easy. You can always use a boxed cake mix if you are in a bind or you can make your own homemade version of yellow cake for the recipe. This Lemonade Cake recipe would be a great reason to make your own homemade yellow cake mix and keep it on hand in the pantry!

This looks really delicious! I love making fun flavored cakes. I bet this would be a really great way to add moisture to a gluten-free cake and keep it from going dry so quickly.
