Lucy's Luscious Lemon and Key Lime Cake

This is a special family cake recipe we named after my husband's mother. Although my British born husband now lives here in America, his mother Lucy was born in and spent her whole life in England. It's such a pretty and tasty cake, we just had to name it after this wonderful, lovely and very "sweet" lady, my husband's mother Lucy.

This is an easy cake to make, using a boxed cake mix and instant lemon pudding and pie filling mix.

This cake is moist and delicious, and one your whole family will enjoy.

Garnish this lovely spring or summertime cake with fresh strawberries and slices of lemon or lime for a pretty presentation.
