Homemade Lemon Pudding Cake


    ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
    1½ cups of white granulated sugar
    1 package of jello lemon pie filling (small packet, equals 2 cups or 4 servings)
    2 tbsp fresh lemon zest
    4 eggs
    1¼ cup whole milk
    ⅓ cup canola oil
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1¾ cups all-purpose flour
    3 tbsp cornstarch
    4 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt


    Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and flour a standard Bundt pan.(the 12 cup capacity)
    In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt then set aside.
    Using an electric mixer on medium speed with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.Add in the lemon pie filling mix and combine thoroughly.
    Beat in the eggs, one at a time, making sure each is thoroughly incorporated.
    Mix in the lemon zest.
    Combine the milk, oil and vanilla extract in a large measuring cup or bowl.
    Starting with the dry ingredients, alternate pouring a third of the wet and dry ingredients into the mixer bowl, incorporating thoroughly after each addition. You will end on the wet ingredients. Mix on medium speed for 2 minutes after the last addition.
    Pour the cake batter into the prepared Bundt pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
    Invert the cake onto a baking rack to cool.
    Frost with Lemon Buttercream Icing when the cake has completely cooled and sprinkle lemon zest over the icing if wanted.
