The red raspberry preserves filling in this lemony yellow cake makes each slice pretty as a picture!
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ lemon cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
tablespoons raspberry preserves
cups butter or margarine, softened
teaspoons grated lemon peel
tablespoons lemon juice
cups powdered sugar
Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Grease or lightly spray bottoms only of three 9-inch round cake pans.
In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 2 minutes (do not overbeat). Pour into pans.
Bake 15 to 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
Fill layers with raspberry preserves. To make frosting, in medium bowl, beat butter, lemon peel and lemon juice on medium speed 30 seconds. Gradually beat in powdered sugar. Beat 2 to 3 minutes longer or until light and fluffy. Frost side and top of cake with frosting. Store covered in refrigerator.
Make your cake extra-special! Top it with fresh raspberries, lemon peel curls or edible flowers.
For a great twist, try strawberry or apricot preserves instead of raspberry.
