This is one of those cakes that looks like it requires tons of works, but it really doesn’t. Because of the addition of fresh lemon and lemon curd, the chemical taste of cake mix is completely masked, too.

The filling is an easy step, too. I hate piping, but it was not prob here. I used a gallon Ziploc, snipped off the corner, ta-da!

Equipment

  • large bundt pan

Ingredients

Filling

  • 8 ounce cream cheese 1 box, softened
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 large lemon zested and juiced

Cake

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 3 eggs room temperature
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 3/4 cup lemon curd

Glaze

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon curd

Instructions

Make the filling

  • In a small bowl, mash together the cream cheese, white sugar, lemon zest and 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice; reserve the remaining juice for the glaze. Once the filling is combined, spoon it into a piping bag with large tip or a gallon Ziploc bag with the corner cut off.

Make the cake

  • Preheat oven at 350-degrees. Apply nonstick spray to a large bundt pan.
  • In a big bowl, cream together the butter and eggs. Add the cake mix, scraping bottom of bowl as needed. Add the lemon curd, beating until mix turns fluffy.
  • Spoon about half the cake mix into the prepared pan. Pipe the filling in a circle around the top of the batter. Try to keep the filling from touching the sides. Add the rest of the batter on top and smooth it out.
  • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until the middle passes the toothpick test.
  • Cool on a wire rack about 20 minutes, then invert the cake onto a wire rack to completely cool.

Make the glaze

  • Whisk together the confectioners' sugar, 1 Tablespoon lemon juice, and 1 Tablespoon lemon curd to form a thick yet oozy glaze. If necessary, add more juice or water to thin, or more confectioners' sugar to thicken. Drizzle atop cake.
  • Store under a cake dome or plastic wrap in fridge.

OM NOM NOM!
