Amazing Lemon-Poppy Seed Bundt

As you may know, I work the weekend package and a co-worker and I have been having sweet Sundays and take turns bringing in delicious deserts to try out. This past week I have come across an amazing bundt cake recipe that I absolutely adore! I made this cake for our 4th of July picnic and everyone loved it! I didn’t even get to take any home!


  • 1 lemon flavor box cake mix (I like Pillsbury)
  • 1 3.9 oz lemon pudding mix (I use the cook serve but instant works too)
  • 1 Tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • 3/4 C oil
  • 3/4 C water (for the lemon cake, I use lemon juice instead for extra flavor)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 8oz tub sour cream
  • for the glaze: lemon juice and powdered sugar. mix a little of each until you have the consistency of melted chocolate


  • In no particular order, add all ingredients to large mixing bowl and stir together
  • bake at 350 for about 45-50 minutes.
  • check with a knife for done-ness
  • drizzle with topping

The best part about this recipe is that you can switch out the cake and pudding flavors and have a totally different cake! It always turns out super moist!

Other flavors I’ve tried:

  • devils food cake, chocolate pudding and chocolate chips for a triple chocolate cake
  • strawberry cake and pudding mix
  • spice cake mix and butterscotch pudding and chips

On these cakes, I topped them with a sprinkle of powdered sugar or melted chips.
