Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 box lemon cake mix or 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 (6 ounce) box lemon Jell-O gelatin
  • 4 eggs
  • 34 cup oil
  • 12 cup water
  • 34-1 cup lemon juice
  • 1 (1 lb) box powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to temperature specified on cake mix.
  2. Mix the first five ingredients together to form cake batter.
  3. Pour into a prepared 9*13 dish and bake approximately 1 hour (a toothpick inserted will still be slightly moist).
  4. While the cake is baking, mix together the lemon juice and powdered sugar (should still be very liquidy, not a paste).
  5. When the cake is done, immediately fork several holes in the top of it.
  6. Pour the juice mixture onto the cake- make sure to get the edges too.
