  • One box (16 ounces) of lemon cake mix
  • One package (3.4 ounces) of instant lemon pudding mix
  • Four large eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. Combine the lemon cake mix and instant lemon pudding mix in a large mixing bowl. Stir until well combined.
  3. Add the eggs to the dry mixture, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. The batter will start to thicken and become smooth.
  4. Once all the eggs are incorporated, add the sour cream to the bowl. Mix until the batter is smooth and creamy, with no lumps remaining.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading it evenly with a spatula.
  6. Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  7. Once baked, remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes.
  8. After cooling slightly, carefully transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Once cooled, slice the lemon pound cake into thick, decadent slices and serve. Enjoy the burst of lemony flavor in every bite!
  10. Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the refrigerator for longer freshness.
