Pink Lemonade Pound Cake

Jump to recipe!

There’s nothing like sitting on the front porch, sipping a tall glass of Pink Lemonade! While we are anxiously awaiting warmer weather around here so we can enjoy sitting outside, I am enjoying this Pink Lemonade Pound Cake. Starting with a white cake mix and adding a burst of flavor with Pink Lemonade concentrate and drink mix, this Pound Cake is super easy to make.

Typically pound cake is baked in either a loaf or bundt pan, but I thought it would be fun to bake them in a mini version. Who doesn’t love little individual servings of cake? I used a Fluted Muffin Tin for the individual servings, making them perfect for just about any holiday, perhaps for a Mother’s Day dessert this weekend.

This Pound Cake has a little tangy flavor, but not too much and is creamy from the addition of sour cream and cream cheese.

You can either give them a dusting of powdered sugar or for a little sweeter version, drizzle some with Pink Lemonade Glaze.

And I just had to serve them with a cute tall glass filled with Pink Lemonade and a pink stripe straw.

  2. Just found this today and must must make. Woops, I don’t have the lemonade mix until I go shopping. Any suggestions for a substitute?

    1. Hi Lexy, sorry, there really isn’t a substitution for the lemonade mix, the cake gets its flavor from it.
      Happy Baking!

    After 1 1/2 hours in oven (bundt) batter is still liquidy.Edges are burnt…I spent a lot of money,time,energy etc and am not happy!! What went wrong?

    1. Hi Barbara, I’m sorry you had trouble with the recipe. We did not make it in a regular size bundt pan, we only made the small size bundts. Was the pan too full? Or maybe the oven didn’t heat correctly? I apologize I’m not sure what could have happened.

    Your pink lemonade pound cake sounds delicious. I have one question though.
    When the recipe calls for 1/4 cup pink lemonade drink mix, are you talking about
    Kool-Aid or sugar free Crystal Light or what
