Easy Lemon Cake

We love a good dump cake and this lemon version with cream cheese filling is just the best. Such a bright and fresh flavor and a fantastic dessert for spring and summer.

The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make Lemon Dump Cake (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the easy to print recipe card):

Lemon pie filling – you can also use lemon curd if you prefer.
Cream cheese – use one block of cream cheese and soften to room temperature so it blends easily.
Egg – the egg will help the cream cheese mixture bake into a cheesecake-like filling.
Granulated sugar
Lemon cake mix – you can use vanilla cake mix instead if you prefer.
Butter – we used regular salted butter.
