I asked Big D what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday, and he requested lemon he got. I took an easy lemon cake recipe and tweaked it a bit. If you get a craving for something lemony, this cake should do the trick. It has a really intense lemon flavor from using 3 lemon ingredients. And it's super easy....


1 (3-oz) pkg lemon flavored Jello
1 cup boiling water
1 box lemon cake mix (I used Duncan Hines)
3 eggs
¾ cup vegetable oil
1 TBSP lemon juice


2 cups powdered sugar
3 TBSP lemon juice

DECORATING: 1 lemon, washed and sliced

Dissolve jello in water. Cool. Then combine cake mix, eggs, vegetable oil, lemon juice, and gelatin. Beat until smooth. Pour into greased 9 x 13” baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees 30 – 35 minutes.

Combine glaze ingredients. Pour over cake, while cake is still warm.

After cake cools, place lemon slices on top for decoration.

Optional: Add 1/2 tsp. lemon zest to cake batter and 1/2 tsp. lemon zest to glaze.

Aloha Patti; I love the taste of lemon and your cake recipe sounds like a winner; I'll have to try this one.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment. I'll try to work on a tutorial for the tea light cake.
