1 package lemon cake mix
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup oil
1 small package lemon instant pudding
Mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients. Mix with electric mixer on medium speed for about two minutes. Use a strong mixer, this batter is thick. Bake @ 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Don’t over bake!
Lemon Buttercream Frosting:
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, very soft
6-8 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
