Tasty/Tempt Your Tummy Tuesday

Tuesday, August 4, 2009

Thank you to the lovely hostess's of Tasty Tuesday & Tempt Your Tummy Tuesday. This is my first time participating. Our church is hosting a missionary family this week and the ladies are providing their suppers. It's my turn! So my menu is Cornbread Stuffed Pork Chops, Sugar Snap Peas, Romaine Salad (with garden fresh tomatoes and my homemade ranch-style dressing)and homemade rolls. I wanted to try something new for dessert and had a hard time deciding. I finally decided to try Paula Deen's Mountain Dew cake. I love anything lemony and figured with the hot temperatures we're having it would be refreshing. That will be served with some fresh strawberries. I made 2 so that we can have some for dessert today too.

Makes 1 Bundt cake
1 (18.25-ounce) box lemon cake mix
1 (3.4-ounce) box lemon flavored instant pudding mix
1 (12-ounce) can Mountain Dew soda
3/4 cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease and flour a 10-cup Bundt pan. In a large bowl, combine cake mix and pudding mix. Add soda, oil and eggs. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour batter into prepared pan, and bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool completely on a wire rack.

    This looks great and I am printing the recipe right now. I love bundt cakes and I'll bet the Mountain Dew makes it moist and with a good hint of flavor.

    Adding a review of the Mountain Dew Cake recipe. YUM!! The cake was very, very mosit. It had a very lemony flavor with a hint of something that you just weren't sure what it was (Mt. Dew, lol). I just sprinkled it with powdered sugar and served fresh strawberries on the side. A big hit and since it was easy-breesy, something I'll surely make again! Thanks for all the nice comments.

  1. Oh, my gosh, these look so yummy! Now I'm craving scones. :) The cake looks great, too.
