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.

  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.
