Mango Lemon Cake

I have been baking this Mango Lemon cake for years for two reasons:

1.  It is easy to prepare and simply delicious. Isn’t that the reason we love to cook in the first place?

2.  This cake goes well with a cup of hot tea, a cup of coffee or berries and sherbet.

It also goes well with my new Kate Spade dessert plates.

Mango Lemon Cake

Ingredients

1 yellow cake mix

1/3 cup oil

3 large eggs

1 cup mango nectar

1 Tablespoon lemon extract or 1 (3 oz.) pkg. lemon gelatin

1 Tablespoon lemon zest

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour bundt pan. Instead of flour I use dry cake mix to dust the bundt or tube pan.  Add any extra dry cake mix back to the mixing bowl.
