Girl Scout Cookie Lemon Cake

If you love lemons, you’ll love this cake! This was my second experiment using Girl Scout cookies. Huge Success! It has tons of lemon flavor and it’s very refreshing.

1 Box of Vanilla Cake Mix (Any variety of white cake mix will work)
(Ingredients on back of Cake Mix-oil, eggs, water)
1 Lemon, Juiced and Zested
3 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
1 Box Girl Scout Lemonade Cookies, Crushed

1 Box Confectioner’s Sugar
1 Lemon, Juiced and Zested
5 Tablespoons Butter, at room temperature
8 oz. Cream Cheese, at room temperature
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract


1. Preheat oven and crush the Girl Scout cookies. Spray a 9×13 inch pan with non-stick spray.
2. Melt the 3 tablespoons of butter and mix with the crushed cookies and press evenly into the 9×13 pan.

3. Mix the cake ingredients together. The only exception is to measure the lemon juice from the one lemon, and then add more water to it to equal the amount of water needed for that particular cake mix. Also add in the zest of that lemon.
4. Pour the cake mixture on top of the crushed cookies.
Cake Batter
Bake as directed and let it cool completely.
5. While the cake is baking, prepare the frosting. Beat the cream cheese and butter in a bowl until light and fluffy. Then add the lemon juice, vanilla extract and lemon zest until combined.
6. Slowly add in the entire box of confectioner’s sugar.
Lemon Frosting
I let the frosting chill in the refrigerator until the cake was completely cooled. Frost the cake (there will be a lot of frosting-yum!).

**When cutting the cake, use a spatula or cake server in order to ensure that you get all of the cookie crumb goodness on the bottom of the pan.**
