    Wow, the Cool Whip sounds like a worthy addition. Gotta try that. Thanks.

    I make this every month or so except I use a lemon cake mix. I love my lemon! I also use a package of Dream Whip with the pudding and 1 1/2 cups of milk and beat them together instead of the Cool Whip. This is so good and so easy!

    Okay, anything with lemon or chocolate are winners to me! This cake is what I am looking for. I've been looking for a yummy cake recipe that is, sweet yet not so sweet, with a little bit of tart and excuse me for saying this but, easy ;-) You know, for a quick dessert when you have just heard that company is coming lol Thank you Dugger!
