I had the good fortune of receiving this next recipe from Country Cook reader, Cynthia Brandon. I must have accidentally deleted the email Cynthia sent me, or else I would let y’all know where Cynthia is from.
Cynthia, if you’re reading this, give me a holler! I had this recipe printed out and in my stack of recipes for months now and finally had a chance to make it recently. I just love anything lemon (and many of you are aware of my love for making fun cakes with boxed cake mixes). So this was a match made in heaven. And lemon cakes are just made for summer.

1 box vanilla cake mix ingredients needed to make cake: eggs, oil & water 1 15.75 oz can lemon pie filling 1 tub lemon flavored frosting 1 8 oz tub whipped topping (COOL WHIP) thawed
Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Prepare cake mix as directed on the back of the box. Pour batter into baking dish. Place spoonfuls of lemon pie filling all over the batter. Take a knife and swirl it all around to help evenly distribute it better. Bake at 350F degrees (in center rack) for about 35-40 minutes until cake springs back to the touch and isn't jiggly in the center. Let cake cool completely before proceeding to the next step. In a bowl, combine lemon flavored frosting with whipped topping. Mix until thoroughly combined. Spread frosting over cooled cake.
