Lemon Ice Box Cake

Note: If you live in Mississippi, you have probably eaten plenty of lemon ice box pies, but not as many Lemon Ice Box Cakes. They are equally as delicious and will make even more of your family happy!

Lemon Ice Box Cake

2 cans sweetened condensed milk
2/3 cups fresh lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice. Place in refrigerator to thicken.

1 box yellow cake mix
1 8 ounce carton sour cream
4 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine all cake ingredients. Pour into 4 greased and floured 8 inch round cake pans. Bake 20- 22 minutes. Let cool. Set aside 3/4 cup of filling mixture. Spread cake layers with remaining filling mixture.

3/4 cup filling mixture
1 8 ounce carton Cool Whip

Combine filling mixture and Cool Whip. If necessary, secure cake with skewers while icing. Keep cake refrigerated.

Your right about if you live in MS. I have had my share of lemon ice box pie, but lordy a lemon ice box cake sure sounds good.

Anything with 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk gets 2 thumbs up from me.
