Easypeasy Lemon Cake

Lemonade Cake
Bake your favorite white or yellow cake. If you LOVE lemons, bake a lemon flavored cake. Allow to cool for 15 minutes. Prick the top with a fork. While your cake is baking, mix a 6 oz. container of frozen lemonade with 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Stir often. Pour the glaze over the cooled cake. I used a basting brush to help spread the glaze evenly. That is it! A simple refreshing dessert. You could also add Cool Whip topping or make your own whipped cream topping. I am going to try it with orange juice next. The glaze could also be used with pound cake or angel food cake. 

I have checked the weather forecast this morning. Not looking too good. They said at least 40 states will have temps OVER 90 degrees in the coming week. Many will have a heat index over 110, including us here in Indiana. We got a big ole rain storm yesterday. While the gardens loved it, definitely more humid now. Wherever you are, hope you are able to find a cool spot to nest down with your creating. 

Off for treatment #2 here in a bit. :o) In everything give thanks, right? So I am thankful for a car with air, a nice facility and staff to get my meds, air in my home, clean sheets on my bed and my precious family and friends.

I am blessed. ~Angela

That sounds delish, thank you! I'm not looking at the forecast, lol, my sewing room is the only place in the house with a/c. Sometimes I don't want to get out of the car, and for sure I'm not cooking. Stay cool hon, and I am praying for you for your treatments!

Hi Angela, thank you so much for the lemon cake recipe! I have been looking for just that one. The other day I had a slice of lemonade cake from our local cafe and I just loved it. We have been having a lot of rain too. Our heat index has been up about the same level. I love summer but I am really looking forward to the first cool day of autumn when I can put on a sweater and bake some pumpkin bread! :) I hope your treatment goes well and you have a lovely afternoon ahead. You have such an encouraging and inspiring attitude Angela and I enjoy reading your blog very much. Delisa :)

Hi Angela,
That cake sounds super yummy--gonna give it a try! We do make lemon cake, but not that way!
We are in MN here and are having a very hot summer, though it has cooled down the last couple days and brought us some rain, which feels wonderful.
I'm in your OFG team, and am praying for your treatments to go well. I'm in chemo myself, so I know what you are going through. Hang in there, keep on smiling, and let the Lord do His thing!
Hugs, Karen
