Dassant "Lemon Cake with Lemon Curd" Recipe

I have a friend that loves lemon anything, and is always looking for a new baking opportunity for me to try. 
She happen to come across a company that makes premium baking mixes that you can only buy on-line.   
 A few weeks ago a packaged arrived with six lemon cake boxes and straight out of the box I was handed a mix and a recipe to try from Dassant company.

What I like about this cake mix and recipe that it was simple.

Here is the recipe as follows


1 box of Dassant lemon cake mix
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil


Store bought lemon curd
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 to 3 tablespoons of lemon juice

This recipe calls for a angel food cake pan, but I used a spring cake pan for the job.
Spray pan or lightly grease the pan with oil and set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Combine eggs, milk and vegetable oil and add cake mix gently beating until smooth. 
Pour batter into pan and bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until done.

Once cake is cool spread lemon curd over the top of cake. 
In a bowl mix together powdered sugar with lemon juice with a hand held mixer on low.
Drizzle over the cake with a spoon or fork.

I have to say this recipe is one to try and keep.
My friend was very pleased with the outcome and is looking for a new recipe as we speak.
