Someone asked me for this and I should have posted it here instead of in the comments section. I'm a bit distracted since I just moved. This was my mom's favorite cake and she loved it with whipped cream. Hope you enjoy it!

Ingredients

1 box
lemon cake mix (do not follow directions on box)
4
eggs, beaten
3/4 c
vegetable oil
3/4 c
water
1 pkg
small box lemon jello
lemon glaze
3/4 c
powdered sugar
3 Tbsp
butter
3 Tbsp
lemon juice
enough milk to make a spreadable glaze

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pre-heat oven to 350*.

Grease and flour a 9 x 13 inch pan
2
In a large bowl,combine cake mix, oil, water, eggs and jello.

Beat with mixer on medium-high speed for 4 minutes.
3
Pour into pan and bake 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
4
As soon as cake is done and is hot, use a meat fork or skewer and punch holes all over cake.

Spread glaze all over cake--glaze will melt down into cake. Let cool and serve with whipped cream.

Glaze:
3/4 cup powdered sugar (sift if you like)
3 TBS butter
3 TBS Lemon Juice
Enough milk to make a spreadable glaze
6
Can make this cake using other flavors: just match up cake mix and jello, and if possible, juice in the glaze.
I have made Cherry and Orange versions.
