I loved the idea of taking a yellow cake mix and making cinnamon rolls in my last blog Cake Mix Cinnamon Rolls so I decided to try a lemon cake mix (I love just about anything lemon). I pondered on what to put in the middle as cinnamon filling on a lemon flavored roll did not sound appealing. And then it clicked, lemonade drink mix sounded real good!
The recipe is the same as the Cake Mix Cinnamon Roll recipe except use a lemon cake mix. For the filling, instead of the cinnamon mixture, I smeared the rolled out dough with softened margarine and sprinkled 1/3 cup of Country Time Lemonade drink mix (regular, not sugarfree) over the dough. Follow the remainder of the recipe until the glaze. I used powder sugar mixed with lemon juice and added a bit of yellow food coloring and drizzled over the top of the warm rolls.
