Lemon Cake

My son has a knack for asking for interesting cakes for his birthday, like this Triple Lemon Cake, this M&M & Kit Kat Cake and this Donut Cake. For his brothers I have also done Twizzlers & Candy Bar Cake and Reese’s Pieces & Kit Kat Cake. This year, when he asked for a lemon cake again, I decided to go with a family favorite.

My husband’s grandmother was so very kind a few years ago to make me a book with copies of recipes in her handwriting, as well as her mother’s handwriting. This Lemon Cake recipe is one of those treasures.



Lemon Cake

1 pkg Lemon Cake Mix
1 box Lemon Jell-o
4 eggs
1 3/4 c. Oil
3/4 c. water

Blend ingredients at medium speed. Put in greased and [well] floured tube pan. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes in pan. Remove and punch holes all over with ice pick. Pour over a glaze made of 2 cups powered sugar with 8-9 tablespoons lemon juice. (I find that 5-6 tablespoons of juice is sufficient, and you end up with more than enough glaze, so you could probably cut back on powdered sugar also.)

Enjoy with a glass of milk.


Let me know how yours turns out!
