One 9-by-13-inch cake, about 15 slices

  • Cake:
  • 1 box vanilla cake mix
  • 1 small box vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • Zest of 1 lemon

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • For the cake: In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mix, buttermilk, oil, eggs, lemon zest and lemon and lime juices. Whisk well, or beat with a hand mixer, until the batter is combined and smooth.

  • Pour the batter into a 9-by-13-inch nonstick baking pan, or use a regular pan coated with cooking spray. Bake until the cake is baked through, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove the cake from the oven.
