Tonight's Dessert: Lemon Jello Cake

This cake recipe is a family favorite which was handed down from my grandmother and my great-aunt. I don't believe I've ever seen it in a cookbook -- perhaps because it includes a cake mix in the recipe -- but it's available many places online. I include one such site at the subject link.

This makes a great summery dessert.


1 package lemon cake mix (I use Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme)

1 3 oz. package lemon Jello

3/4 cup water

3/4 cup vegetable oil

4 eggs

Mix all together for 4 minutes.

Bake in a 9 x 13 pan at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.

When cake comes out of the oven, immediately poke it all over with a fork. Then pour over the cake a glaze consisting of:

2 cups sifted powdered sugar

mixed with

2 lemons -- juice and grated zest

Cool before serving.
