Quick & Easy Lemon & Lime Loaf


Lucious lemon cake...oh my goodness! So easy to make and incredibly moist and delicious. If you are short on time and need to make a dessert everyone will love...give this one a try! 

Ingredients:

For the Lemon Lime Loaf:


4 eggs
1 box of lemon cake mix
1 small box if instant lemon pudding
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup lukewarm water

2 tsp lime zest

For the Frosting:

2 cups powdered sugar
1-3 tbsp water
1 lemon for juice and zest


Directions: 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour cake mix, water, pudding, oil, and eggs in a large bowl and mix together well. We just did it with a whisk for about a minute or so until it was all combined well. Next, pour the batter into two lightly greased loaf pans and bake for about 40 minutes or until the center of the loaf tests clean.


For the frosting, mix 2 cups of powdered sugar and half of a lemon juiced. Next, start adding in some of the water, just enough so that the frosting starts coming together. Add in enough water to your likeness of the how thick or thin you would like the frosting to be. We like more of a thicker frosting, while you could add more water and make it into more of a icing/glaze instead. Top cooled lemon loaf with your icing and finish with a little lemon zest.
