This Easy Lemon Cake is simple to make with a box cake mix, lemon gelatin, and Kroger Simple Truth Eggs (Cage Free). This will be a special dessert served at Easter, Mother’s Day or all year ’round.
The very first time I tasted this Easy Lemon Cake, I fell in love with it.
It was hand delivered when Kurt’s mom and dad drove out to Illinois after we’d had our first baby. Gigi, the matriarch of my mother-in-law’s family has baked it to welcome her new great granddaughter. Granted our daughter didn’t have the opportunity to enjoy it then, but she was able to do so for years to come at many Easter celebrations.
Every year Gigi’s four children and their families from across the country would gather together to celebrate both Easter and her birthday the same weekend. Not everyone was able to attend at times, but those gatherings were something special. We created many memories to last a lifetime and built stronger family relationships all because Gigi and Granddad created a strong foundation on which to do so.

Among all the other delicious food Gig prepared, this Easy Lemon Cake was always a favorite and one many of us looked forward to. When I asked her for the recipe, I was so surprised with how easy it was. I know some people like making desserts from scratch, but I don’t see anything wrong with taking a few shortcuts here and there, especially if you’ve got a crowd of 40 or more people coming over! 😉
This Easy Lemon Cake is moist and full of lemon flavor. You could even add bit more by adding a 1/2 – 1 teaspoon of lemon extract if you’d like.
A plain cake mix usually calls for 3 eggs, but for this recipe I used 4 of Kroger’s Simple Truth Eggs. I love shopping at my local Fry’s Market (Kroger) because I love the atmosphere and layout of the store, but even better they’ve recently dropped the prices on many items including the eggs!
