Today is my yoga instructors birthday. Her name is Carol and she's the one with the red shirt.

My yoga buddies are left to right- Kathy, Pat, Cherokee, Judy and Sharon. Many others ladies but they were enjoying the cake.

1 pkg Duncan Hines® Moist Deluxe® Lemon Cake Mix *
1 (3.4 oz) pkg instant lemon pudding and pie filling
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 Cup plus 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons whole milk
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract


Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 10-inch tube pan.

Combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, water and oil in large bowl. Beat at medium speed with electric mixer for 2 minutes. 

Pour into pan.

Bake at 350°F for 50 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

 Cool in pan 25 minutes. Invert onto heat resistant serving plate. Cool completely.

Combine ingredients in bowl and mix with electric mixer on low speed.
When cake is cool, remove from pan and top with the lemon icing. Let icing has set up, before slicing loaf into eight 1-inch-thick slices.

Makes 8 slices.

*The box I used was 15.25  ounces. Needed to upsize the mix.

  1. Happy Birthday Carol..Linda this cake looks very good..It also looks to be a nice moist cake with the pudding in it. I miss my class of friends I used to be with at Curves. Never lose that joy you are sharing with your lovely lady friends. I tried Yoga when I was in my early 20's with my neighbor . We got together in the morning at her house and down on the rug we went with a Lady on the TV..I can't remember the program. Gail Passed away in here 40's and I miss her..Hold on to those Friends and enjoy your time together..

    1. It's a nice group. I've been going for about 4 years. Part time when we were going back home for the summer and now I go every week. It's Chair Yoga. No way as hard as regular yoga.

      I'll tell Carol you sent birthday wishes.

  2. This looks like a fun group to do Yoga with. So nice that you get together and have fun. Happy Birthday to Carol. I can taste that cake. Love the lemon. Yum. I have made cakes with pudding and they are so good.
