Lemon Mascarpone Cake

A friend's mom prepared this for us. It is her attempt to copy an Olive Garden dessert. It is VERY yummy!

White cake mix
1 whole egg
instant lemon pudding mix

Bake cake mix according to directions using only 1 egg and adding 1/3 box of lemon pudding mix.
Bake in two layers.

**Mascarpone cheese (about 1/3 of small tub)
1/2 c. heavy whipping cream
1 t. clear vanilla
1/3 c. sugar
1 T. of instant lemon pudding mix

Mix filling ingredients. Spread between cooled cake layers. Sprinkle powdered sugar over top of cake.

**Mascarpone cheese substitution:
Blend 8 oz. soft cream cheese with 1/4 c. heavy cream and 2 T. softened butter. Use 1/3 of this as substitution for mascarpone cheese in filling.
