Years ago Duncan Hines used to put on their boxes of cake mix 3 different
ways to prepare the cake. Lite, original, and rich. I have been trying to
fine the RICH way to prepare the cake. The lemon was my favorite. The rich
version called for a can of condensed milk to be used can you help with the
Sorry, I can't find any mention of these three different recipes on the
Duncan Hines lemon cake recipe box. I might be able to find a lemon cake
recipe that calls for lemon cake mix and condensed milk, but it might be one
that doesn't mention Duncan Hines by name. Let me know if you want me to
look for that.
I'll post this on my site for reader input.
That said, I did find a lemon cake recipe that mentions Duncan Hines by
name and calls for condensed milk. However, it does not say it's a box recipe,
and it calls for jello pudding, which you did not mention. See below.
Lemon Cake Supreme
1 Duncan Hines Lemon cake mix
1 c. water
1/2 c. softened butter or margarine (4 oz.)
1 (3-4 oz.) pkg. Jello Lemon Instant Pudding Mix
1/4 c. sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. grated lemon peel
2 tbsp. lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and lightly flour a 9 x 13 pan.
Place the cake mix, eggs, water, margarine, pudding mix, condensed milk,
lemon peel, and lemon juice into a large bowl. Blend until all ingredients
are moistened, then mix at medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour batter into the
pan, and bake for 45-50 minutes. Cool in the pan on a rack for 15 minutes.
Remove from the pan and frost with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting.
Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting:

I am looking for a coffee cake recipe my mother used to make. Unfortunately
she cannot remember the source or the name. We lived in MI at the time, and
it was in the '70s.
It was made in a jelly roll pan, and the base was a non-yeast dense cake.
The topping was primarily cinnamon & sugar and butter. After the base cake
was done, melted butter was applied and then cinnamon sugar and it was
returned to the oven for finishing. I can still taste the butter and crispy
edges, and have been on a hunt for the recipe for a very long time. I've
searched your archives and the Internet but can't find it.
Perhaps you will have some luck. I would be so grateful to have that recipe
in our family again.
Below is the closest that I can find to your description.
Cinnamon Sugar Coffee Cake
1 1/2 c. sifted cake flour
1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 c. shortening, melted
1 egg, unbeaten
1/2 c. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Beat on No. 3 speed, about 2 minutes. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl while
beating. Beat only until well blended. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake at 350 degrees (moderate oven) about 25 minutes. Take from oven, brush
generously with melted butter. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup of sugar which has
been mixed with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Bake 5 minutes longer. Makes about
