You are going to love this Lemon Coffee Cake recipe with cake mix! When I made this recipe originally, I used Meyer Lemons for the glaze on top. But, I wanted to make it again and wasn’t able to find them in my store. So, instead I used regular lemons and it came out just as delicious! Feel free to create this recipe with either Meyer Lemons or regular lemons. You’ll love it just the same.

Lemon Coffee Cake Recipe with Cake Mix

This Lemon Coffee Cake Recipe with cake mix is one of my favorite recipes to make when we’re entertaining. I’ve served it for Easter and Mother’s Day. It has always been a huge hit because it is so moist.  You can create a streusel topping for it or make a glaze with confectioner sugar and lemon juice like I did. Or, you can serve it without a topping.

If you choose to make the Lemon Glaze for the top, you will need to follow these directions. If you prefer a lemon coffee cake with streusel, you can simply add a streusel topping before you bake it.

Simple Lemon Icing

  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice (Meyer lemon or other)
  • 2 tsp grated lemon zest (you will need a zester)
  • 1 tbsp milk

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir until there are no lumps remaining. Drizzle over the lemon coffee cake.

Did you know that Meyer Lemons are actually a cross between a traditional lemon and a mandarin orange? They are sweeter and have a thinner skin. Since it is much sweeter than a traditional lemon, you need to add less sugar when making drinks like lemonade. You may want to try my homemade lemonade with stevia using Meyer lemons to see the taste difference. Looking for more lemony goodness? Try my Buttermilk Lemon Poundcake.

Check out the video above for a few tips about zesting lemons.
