  • 1 box (15oz) Lemon cake mix
  • 1 pkg (3.4oz) instant lemon pudding mix
  • 4 large egg whites
  • ¾ cup buttermilk or milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • zest of one lemon
  • juice of one lemon

For the glaze

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 23 tablespoons milk
  • Juice of one lemon (optional)
  • 2 cups sweetened shredded coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F . Generously grease and flour a mini bundt pan.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine lemon cake mix, instant lemon pudding mix, egg whites, buttermilk, vegetable oil, sour cream and lemon juice and zest. Beat on medium speed until well mixed.
  3. Fill each bundt about 2/3 full. Bake at 350°F for 18-22 minutes. You will need to check this frequently toward the end. Baking time will vary completely based on how full your pan is.
  4. Allow the cakes to cool for 10-15 minutes before attempting to flip over. To loosen, take a toothpick and gently poke around the middle and edges of the cake.
  5. To prepare the glaze, sift the powder sugar into a medium sized bowl. Then add the milk, and vanilla extract, whisking until desired consistency. For a thick glaze, you may only need 2 tablespoons of milk.
  6. To coat the bundt, either invert and dip into the glaze or use a spoon to pour the glaze over the bundt cakes. Place on a wire rack with a pan below and allow excess glass to drip off.
  7. Before the glaze is set, use you hands to pat the coconut around the cake. Store in an airtight container. Fill with candy prior to serving.
