I grew up with this a recipe almost the same as this one, the only difference is that we use a lemon cake mix instead of yellow. I have always loved this recipe, and everyone that has tried it has too.

This recipe came to me from my best friend about 20 years ago & I have made it many times a year ever since & for all age groups. EVERYONE loves this cake. I actually mailed it to our son when he was in college! I use lime instead of lemon in the glaze. If the cake is crumbly you're probably cooking it too long.

This was VERY easy to make. The cake was a bit crumbly, but very good texture. I found the cake just laking in flavor. . it needed more something. a
