This recipe was given to me by my dearest friend, Joan Kretzschmar. My daughters and I watched her make it several times, and we always have it for special occasions, and remember laughing with our dear Joan.

How to Make Joan's Lemon Glazed Cake


  1. Bake cake as directed on box. It's best to use a disposable 13x9 foil cake pan. While it's baking, prepare the icing.
  2. As soon as you take cake from oven, punch holes in the cake with a big cooking fork.
  3. Pour the icing all over the cake so that it goes down into the holes.
  4. Let cool completely, then sprinkle with more powdered sugar. It's especially good if you make it the day before.
