    The recipes for those "canned cakes" were delightful, but I love Lemon anythings. I also have a big lemon tree in my back yard and have used them all year long for many years. But since I live alone, I don't bake often, but sometimes I want a hot cup of coffee and something sweet either real early in the day or late at night, and a slice of lemon cake would just hit the spot.

    Any have a good recipe?

    And does anyone know if these little jars would work for Fruit Cakes? I love them too, no matter what others say..laugh and leave them, just makes more for me. And I could have them all year long this way.

    I love lemon too and a friend brought this to a gathering and it was delicious! Let me know how you like it if you decide to make it.

    Lemon Bread

    1 package Lemon cake mix

    3 oz. package instant lemon pudding

    1 cup water

    4 eggs

    cup oil

    Combine all ingredients and mix well. Pour into 3 greased loaf pans and bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes.

    While warm, mix cup sugar and cup lemon juice and pour over the bread.

    It's where you get some small canning jars with no shoulders, boil them and the lids and screw on lids. Then shake the water out and fill part way with cake dough. Bake as usual and while still hot, quickly check the top to make sure it's clean, then put on the lids real tight. Set this on a towel and let it cool. Push down on the lid, it should be down or go "Pop" and that means it's sealed correctly. Then keep in the cabinet after labeling. The internet sites says it will keep a year...if you can keep hungry people from finding it.

    1 can Lemon Pie filling
    1 box Angel Food Cake Mix (Pillsbury)

    Mix together and bake at 350 until lightly golden. Makes the most delicious lemon bars...give a light sprinkle with powdered sugar when cooled. Looks so elegant and is so lemony! Cut into squares and try not to eat the whole pan. =D

    My daughter likes this recipe so much that she recently made her wedding cake from it. The original is in the Cake Doctor book.

    Lemon Buttermilk Poppyseed cake

    1 pkg plain white cake mix
    1 pkg vanilla instant pudding mix
    1/3 c poppy seeds (we cut that down by 1/2)
    1 c. low-fat vanilla or lemon yogurt
    1/2 c. vegetable oil
    1/2 c. buttermilk
    4 lg. eggs
    2 T. fresh lemon juice
    1 t. finely grated lemon zest

    Bake (350 degrees) in greased and floured tube pan 45 - 50 minutes.
    (We used special shaped cupcake pans - got 24 from a batch. Baked at the same temp for 20 - 25 min.)

    The cake is a moist cake, and tastes great by itself. When we served them for the wedding, we used a tsp of seedless raspberry jam as a topping. The flavors worked well together.

    I think someone has to give you a real recipe (ie with natural ingredients)
    Lemon cake .
    4oz self raising flour(110g)
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    4oz soft margarine(or butter)
    4 oz caster sugar
    2 large eggs
    grated rind(zest) of a lemon plus 1 tablespoon of its juice

    sift fflour and raising agent
    mix all other ingredients in till mixed if the mixture is very stiff add another teaspoon or so of lemon juice till it drops off spoon when tapped agaist the side of the bowl.
    divide mixture into 2 lined sandwich tins 7 inch dia and bake in 325 o F or 170 o C oven for 30 mins .Remove from tins to cool then sandwich together with lemon curd or cream.
    Hope you like cake , I am still amazed at you having a lemon tree in your garden !!
    BTW i will not be making this recipe as i have just signed up for the weight loss competition LOL
