My mom’s very favorite cake is Lemon Supreme Pound Cake. I think the recipe comes from the back of the Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Deluxe Cake mix. She was coming into town this weekend so I made it for her. If you love lemon, you’ll love this cake.
Lemon Supreme Pound Cake (Serves 12-16)
1 package Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Deluxe Cake Mix
1 package lemon instant pudding mix (4 serving size)
1/2 cup Crisco Oil*
1 cup water
1. Blend all ingredients in a large bowl, then beat at medium speed for 2 minutes.
2. Bake in a greased and floured 10-inch tube pan at 350 degrees for about 45-55 minutes, until center springs back when touched lightly.
3. Cool right side up for about 25 minutes, then remove from pan.
Glaze: Blend 1 cup confectioners sugar with either 2 Tbsp milk or 2 Tbsp lemon juice. Drizzle over cake.
*Be sure to use Crisco oil as some other oils may cause the cake to fall.
Friday night we went to Alicia’s for dinner. She ordered Leucadia Pizza and I brought a salad.
I went back for seconds. :)
My mom, brother, sister in law and nephew came into town to celebrate Easter with us. We went to our club for their Easter carnival. They had a great buffet!
For dinner we picked up Luna Grill. We ordered beef, chicken and lamb kabobs, salad, rice and hummus.
For dessert, we had the lemon cake I made.
Breakfast on Easter Sunday was half a bagel with cream cheese.
I didn’t want to ruin my appetite for our brunch at Poseidon. We shared the Poseidon Wings which were quite good!
I ordered the Grilled Mahi-Mahi Fish Tacos with Cole Slaw:
They were good! They also had Cholula hot sauce so I was a happy camper.
After lunch, my brother and his family went home. My mom stayed for one more night. We took her to Benihana for dinner. My meal came with their onion soup and salad.
I ordered the steak and lobster with fried rice.
This really is one of my favorite meals ever.
Gotta have some green tea ice cream!
So as you can see, I ate my way through the weekend. It was time to get back on track this morning with my usual breakfast:
After I took the kids to school, I went to Hardline class at the gym. Then I ran some errands, including some stops at Fashion Valley Mall. Of course, I had to stop at Blue Smoke Sushi Lounge for lunch.
Tuna and salmon sushi and a Red Dragon Roll:
Great way to start my Monday!
What was the best thing you ate all weekend?
