I always find the winter months of the year to be a little depressing. Aside from the holidays, the weather is colder, the days are shorter, it makes things a little gloomy. With that in mind, I think cooking brightens my day and helps me cheer up!
Lemon Bread To Bring In The Season
I thought about making something to remind me a little of spring. Anything with lemons in it reminds me of brighter days. This Lemon Bread with pudding was the perfect lift me up that I needed.
Lemon Bread with Cake Mix!
I love just about anything with lemon in it and this lemon bread with pudding is full of sweet yumminess! (I know, once again yumminess isn’t a real word but it should be). This lemon bread with cake mix is so good it could easily pass a dessert. Some people have even told me they like it as much or more than just a straight up lemon bread pudding!
This lemon bread recipe is easy to throw together and cooks up perfectly moist and delicious. Prep time is under 20 minutes and cook time is under an hour. For a bread recipe, that’s not too bad!
Hopefully the winter blues will fade away soon, but in the meantime this lemon bread made with cake mix will have to do!

I love the flavor of this bread! Was so excited to make it…I made a large loaf, 2 small loaves and a few mini muffins…and ALL of them sunk. Any clue what I did wrong? I’d appreciate your input. I have a Farmer’s Market baked goods stand and had hoped to share this this summer….thanks!
I’ve only been able to find 15.25 or 16.25oz cake mixes. Will that work as well?

I have made it several times. Awesome! I have not met anyone who did not love it. Make sure you use real lemon juice. I buy real lemons all the time.
I really like baking sweet breads! My family likes banana and walnut bread most of all, for example, and lemon bread is my favourite! I adore lemon in pastries, it gives a slight sourness and fits well to any sort of tea (I’m a big tea fan!). Last week I made a lemon cake, and the recipe was pretty same, so I recommend everyone to bake it at least once and then it will turn out to be your favourite dessert. Thank you for your blog and recipes, I appreciate them a lot!
