We want to show up tomorrow with a cake or something festive. But in reality who has time to bake 3 cakes? I sure don’t.
Well I just solved this problem for you. Eer, well actually Kris Jenner did.
Let me explain. Last week I was watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians. You know the one where Kris & Khloe have a bake-off? Missed that one? Oh, well it was a good one. Anyway, they have this whole bake-off & Kris makes her famous cake. A cake she’s been making for 20 years. Actually she even is said to have made it for Lamar Odom weekly when he was married to Khloe, #TBT. AND IT’S A LEMON CAKE!
Of course you know how I love lemon so my ears perked up from my laptop. Khloe gives her so much shit because this famous cake she bakes is out of a box. Well two boxes, actually- but we’ll get to that.
Listen, I am a busy bitch so something like this is right up my alley. I like Kris’ style. She does it all & bakes an insane, delicious, famous lemon cake? I want IN.
Like I love the whole juggle of the situation.
So I investigated. I do what I do best. Remember when I found their tea? Or how about those damn salad bowls? I’m all about the dig.
AT FIRST all I could find was Kris saying “fresh eggs & fresh oil, duh.” I LIVE. But I dug deep into the deep, dark web & found one measly article on Kris Jenner’s famous lemon cake.
If you follow along on IG Stories & Snapchat you know I made FOUR CASUAL LEMON CAKES last night. So look at me- Suzy Fucking Homemaker ready to show up to Christmas with my hands full of cakes for everyone. Not boring cakes either…TASTY, buttery soft lemon cakes! You know my relationship with lemon!! This is the perfect yearly tradition for me!
Who gives a shit if it’s out of the box?
Ok, Khloe does. But I sure don’t! I’m more of a Kris than a Khloe anyway. You?
Moving right along.
This is a “recipe” I can give you the night before Christmas & you can pull off.
WHY? BECAUSE it’s a total GET SHIT DONE CAKE. The “recipe” is easy & no one will know.
Well, I guess some people will know because my Dad reads my blog. Shit.
Anyway, you don’t have all day so let’s get to the easiest recipe in the world? Alright: first things first- it’s basically Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Cake Mix, JELLO lemon instant pudding mix, vegetable, eggs, & milk. There’s a glaze too, made with powdered sugar, & lemon juice. YESSSS.
Let’s get exact though, according to the Duncan Hines site:
KRIS JENNER’S FAMOUS LEMON CAKE
+ Makes 12-16 servings
♡ 1 package DUNCAN HINES SIGNATURE DELICIOUSLY MOIST LEMON SUPREME CAKE MIX
♡ 1 package lemon instant pudding Mix ( 4 serving size )
♡ 1/2 cup vegetable oil
♡ 1 cup water
♡ 4 cage-free eggs
+++ GLAZE: blend 1 cup powered sugar w/ either 2 tbsp. milk or 2 tbsp. lemon juice ( use juice of 3 lemons- we like it tart )
+ directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend all ingredients in a large bowl; beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Bake in a greased & floured tube pan, 10″ or fluted at 350 degree for 45-55 minutes, until center springs back when touched lightly. Cool right side up in pan for about 25 minutes, then invert onto serving plate. GLAZE: Poke holes in the cake and then drizzle.
* note: I multiplied the recipe x 4 because I made 4 cakes- my fam, Michael’s, a friend, & Michael’s aunt!
& this my friends, is how you get shit done like Kris J.
Anyone else want to be like Kris Jenner? Or are you more of a Khloe? Khloe does her shit from scratch.
Just wanted to get this up for you guys before tomorrow because it’s totally doable to whip up in seconds. I feel like every Ralph’s on the planet has the ingredients too.
I’m just at DryBar, multi-tasking as usual. Blowout, work, some champagne— & yes, don’t be jealous that my four famous cakes are already made.
It’s totally a yearly tradition now.
My future kids already love me!
Happy holidays to the BEST community on the planet. I love you all more than lemons.
+ my cake holder & pink bundt cake pans are from Home Goods & I just got it, so it’s probably still there ; ).
