Easy Pound Cake

by sunshine on August 8, 2009

One of my readers, Kelli, sent me a message the other day asking if I take recipe suggestions because she had one she wanted to share…..of course I take suggestions, I said!!!  I get bakers block sometimes and need my friends (you guys!) to give me ideas!  She sent me this recipe last night….and I made it today it looked so good!

You can make this pound cake in MANY variations, I chose lemon today.  Partly because it is one of my favorite cakes.  It’s just so light and fluffy.  This cake turned out beautifully and tastes amazing!  This is my new go-to dessert recipe for taking to pot lucks and such.  It’s sure to be a crowd pleaser!  Thanks for the recipe, Kelli!!

Printable Version: Easy Pound Cake


  • 1 box cake mix – any flavor/any brand
  • 1 package (3.4 oz) instant pudding and pie filling mix – any flavor/any brand
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 can frosting – any flavor/any brand


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour a 10-inch bundt or tube pan (sometimes I dust with powdered sugar instead of flour).

Combine cake and pudding mix with eggs, water, vanilla, and oil.  Beat on medium for 2 minutes.  Pour in prepared pan and bake for 40-50 minutes, or until done.  Cool completely and invert on serving dish.

To frost, heat frosting in microwave for 10-15 seconds.  Stir and drizzle over cake.  The instructions say to use 1/2 cup; I say use the whole thing!
