1 (15.25- to 16.5-ounce) package lemon cake mix
1 1/4 cups water
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, melted


1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 to 1 teaspoon mint flavoring*
1 (15.75-ounce) can lemon pie filling


Fresh mint
Lemon slices


Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 15x10x1-inch baking pan; set aside.

Combine all cake ingredients in bowl. Beat according to package directions. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Run knife around sides of pan to loosen edges. Cool completely.

Cut cake crosswise into 3 equal (10x5-inch) pieces while in pan. Place pan into freezer 30-40 minutes or until cake is firm.

Combine whipping cream, powdered sugar and desired amount of mint flavoring in bowl; beat until stiff peaks form. Gently stir in 1/2 cup lemon pie filling. 

Remove cake from freezer; place 1 cake piece, lifting with wide spatula, onto rectangular serving tray. Spread half (about 1/2 cup) of remaining pie filling over cake. Spread 1/2 cup whipped cream mixture over lemon filling. Top with second cake piece; spread with remaining pie filling and 1/2 cup whipped cream mixture. Top with third cake piece; spread remaining whipped cream mixture over sides and top of torte. Refrigerate 6-8 hours or until set.

Garnish with fresh mint and lemon slices before serving. Cut torte with long, sharp serrated knife. Store refrigerated.

*Substitute vanilla or lemon flavoring.

Recipe Tip

Use a deep bowl when whipping cream to prevent spatters.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

Incredible, great and light for a spring or summer treat. I used the lemon flavoring instead of mint and it was perfect. I couldn't find 'canned' lemon pudding in our local stores so I made my own packaged lemon pudding and there were no problems. Be prepared for plenty of compliments!
