Jessie's Lemon Poppyseed Cake

A gorgeous cake can always be delightfully eaten at any time of the day! This one is especially good for a lovely brunch, brilliant company, and warm conversation! Its easy to make AND easy to eat!

One Box Lemon or Yellow Cake
One box Lemon pudding (instant)
3 Egg whites
3/4 cup Light Miracle Whip
1 cup of your favorite juice (orange or pineapple are my faves)
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup poppyseeds

Whip together all ingredients until fluffy and thick. Pour into a greesed (and sugared if desired) bunt pan, and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Cool completely before dressing it with icing or frosting. My favorite icing recipe is as follows: 2 cups powdered sugar, 2 Tbsp melted butter, 3-4 Tbsp of your favorite juice, and a tiny splash of vanilla. It goes on runny but cools to a nice glaze over the cake. Enjoy!

mmm cake! Thanks for the recipe. I will have to give this one to my mom. She is always looking for a good bundt cake recipe. She makes a mini bundt cake for each family member for their birthday and mails it to them. Its a cute idea, and a yummy present.
