• 1 (18.25 oz) package lemon cake mix

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil

  • juice of half a lemon (about 1 Tbsp.)

  • zest of half a lemon (about 1 tsp.)

  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar for decor (optional)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Pour cake mix into a large bowl. Stir in eggs, oil, lemon juice and zest until well blended. Form dough into small balls (about 1 Tbsp.), and drop into a bowl of confectioners’ sugar. Roll them around until they’re lightly covered. Once sugared, place on a lightly-greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 6 to 9 minutes in the preheated oven. The bottoms will be light brown, and the insides chewy.
