Lemon-Lime Margarita Cake

I start making all my goodies for the church coffee cart at the end of the week. I am always trying to come up with new and different ideas to add a lot of variety each week. This gives my a full week to plan ahead, or if need be, to purchase what I cannot or do not have time to make. Earlier this week, I came across a recipe for a margarita cake, non-alcoholic, and thought that sounds just perfect. Of course I made it. It looks just like you would expect – a delicious margarita you can eat with a fork. It is even more festive on my colorful fiesta plate too 🙂

This cake starts with a lemon cake mix and some instant lemon pudding, and then is built up from there.

This cake couldn’t be any easier to make and it is so moist and delicious.

Preheat the oven to 350* F.

Spray a bundt pan with cooking spray and dust a little flour around the sides.

1 lemon cake mix

1 package of instant lemon pudding mix

10 oz margarita mix, non-alcoholic, thawed if frozen

4 eggs at room temperature

1/2 cup softened butter

2 TBSP lime juice

3 tsp lemon zest

Mix everything together at a low speed for about 30 seconds and then at a medium-high speed for about 2 minutes. Evenly spoon it into the prepared bundt pan and bake for about 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Allow the cake to cool completely before removing it from the pan and adding the lime glaze.

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

3 TBSP lime juice

colored sprinkles

Mix the powdered sugar and lime juice together then drizzle over the cake. Add the colored sprinkles on top. Slice and enjoy.

Now, if you want to pack a punch, by all means, add some tequila to the cake and really make it like a margarita. The recipe I found said to use the non-alcoholic stuff, and since I was making it for the church, I thought that was probably best, however, what I should have done, was make 2 versions – one for the adults and one for the kids. Next time, bring on the tequila. 🙂

Stay cool, stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.

      1. Sure will, thanks! My husband loves limes and margaritas. I actually got him a margarita maker for Father’s Day. I bet he will love the cake. I may make it the next time I have a paint party.
