Lemon Sheet Cake

I love sheet cakes in the summer because they bake up so quickly. I also had a special request from my dinner crew so this Lemon Sheet Cake went right to the top of the list of things to try. It was very good, kinda puckery yet sweet at the same time. We'll definitely keep this in our dessert rotation. Another nice idea for hot days, leftovers freeze beautifully-if you happen to have any:@)

It was a very rainy, overcast day... I thought the sprinkles might perk things up a bit:@)
I made half the recipe in a 9 x 13" sheet pan.
Stop by Cooking Classy for very detailed instructions and to see how beautifully she decorated her cake!

  1. Oh, so good to have a minute to visit blogs! This looks fabulous! I love lemon right up next to chocolate. I have two odd children (must have been switched in the hospital) who don't like lemon desserts! Good, more for me!

  4. Your lemon cake sounds perfect for the summer time, Lynn. Yes, my grands and I agree that sprinkles make everything fun! We made homemade vanilla ice cream the other day and yep, they put sprinkles on top.
