Number of Servings: 60


    1 (18.25 oz) package lemon cake mix
    2 eggs
    1/3 cup vegetable oil
    1 Tablespoon lemon juice
    zest from 1 lemon
    1/2 cup powdered sugar


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

Pour cake mix into a large bowl. Stir in eggs, oil, and lemon extract until well blended. Refrigerate dough at least 15 minutes to make handling easier. Roll teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, then drop into a bowl of powdered sugar. Roll them around until they're heavily covered (the more powdered sugar, the more they'll have the "crinkle" look after being baked). Once sugared, put them on an ungreased cookie sheet.

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

Number of Servings: 60

    if you want to save even more calories, make this recipe using the weight watchers recipe, eliminating the eggs and oil. substitue a bottle of diet 7-up or some other lemon/lime diet soda instead. continue the recipe as directed once mixing the cake and soda. - 7/16/17

  • Great idea will NOT use diet soda but soda water might work. Used cake dough with the other stuff. - 5/5/20
