Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Most cake mixes I see are 15.25 oz these days. Cutting corners as usual. Havent made it yet as just received in my email.

Does 4 eggs go in the cake batter or does 2 go in the cake batter and 2 in the pudding mixture?

And the "3 days" is how long msdeb21 said would take them to eat it.

The recipe says 3 "ingredient".

Am I missing something here? Where in the recipe does it say anything about three days?

Hi there. We're not sure what you're asking in regards to three days? If you can provide information on that, we're happy to help.

Love lemon desserts, whether it is lemon poppy seed cake, lemon pound cake, or lemon squares. I like how easy this recipe is, and I like that it contains lemon pudding. We will probably be through this whole cake in three days. We love cake as an after dinner dessert.

Why do these recipes say how long the recipes keep or how to store them ?

Hello! We don't normally include specifics on how to keep or store every dish, since this can vary from person to person. However, if a recipe must be refrigerated if not eaten, we do typically provide this information (as we did above). A cake like this will normally last about a week if refrigerated (although it's so delicious we don't think it'll last that long!). We hope this helps!

I make this every year at Christmas. It is so moist and yummy and full of lemon flavor. If you love lemon you will LOVE this cake!
