Margarita Cake

It's Friday and Friday means my grand kids down the lane are looking for their end of the week treats. Since they've been small I've always had something on the counter or in the cookie jar ready for them on Friday to celebrate the end of the school week and start of the weekend. This week it's Margarita cake. I'm not a big fan cake as a general rule, too much icing to cake ratio. But, I love pound cake in all it's forms - go figure. Remember too that teenage boys are an easy sell, they love just about anything.

Here's what you need:

1 box yellow cake mix
1 box lemon pudding mix
3 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup (non-alcoholic) frozen margarita mix, thawed
1 cup water
1 tsp lemon or lime zest 

Mix according to package directions. You may need to adjust the liquid ingredients depending on what cake mix you're using. Just keep it to 1/3 cup margarita mix and the rest water. Bake at 350* for 45 minutes or until done.


2 cups powder sugar
about 3 tbsp frozen margarita mix 
1 tsp  lemon or lime zest
whisk until pourable consistency or the way you like it, we like it thick.

Until next time,
P.S. Use the rest of the frozen mix in the blender, I think you know what to add to make this an adult treat!! ;D

  1. This cake looks so good. I'm hoping to make it but doubt it'll be in time for Cinco de Mayo. Work always gets in the way!!


Thanks for your comments. I love hearing what you have to say.
