With a few of your own touches, they'll never know you started this Lemon Macadamia Cake with a cake mix!

What You'll Need

  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 (18.25-ounce) package lemon cake mix, batter prepared according to package directions
  • 1 (7-ounce) jar macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped, divided (see Note)
  • 1 (15 ¾-ounce) can lemon pie filling, divided
  • 1 cup (½ pint) heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

What to Do

  1. Stir lemon peel into cake batter and pour batter into two (9-inch) round layer pans, per the package directions; sprinkle each layer with 1/4 cup chopped nuts and bake according to package directions. When cooled completely, place one cake layer upside-down on a serving plate.
  2. Reserve 1/2 cup lemon pie filling and place remaining pie filling in a medium bowl; add 1/2 cup chopped nuts and spread over cake layer. Top with second cake layer and spoon reserved lemon pie filling in center of top layer; chill.
  3. In a medium bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat cream 4 to 5 minutes, or until stiff peaks form; beat in sugar until well combined, then frost the sides of the cake and around the filling on top of the cake.
  4. Sprinkle with remaining chopped nuts and chill at least 2 hours. Serve, or cover loosely and keep chilled until ready to serve.

Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

When you get a craving for fresh baked cookies, you have to do what you have to do. Luckily, here in the Test Kitchen, we can make cookies any time we want. Our go-to are these Oatmeal Cranberry cookies. Can you blame us? These sweet oats and tart cranberries are always a treat when washed down with ice cold milk. We wish you could smell the scent of cinnamon in the Test Kitchen, but making them in your home is just as tasty.
