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!

How to Make Lemon Jello Cake

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.
  5. 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.
