Like the Vanden Brinks this is a handed-down recipe in our family, and it has remained a favorite over the years. We are all for making things easy and we are very satisfied using Duncan Hines Supreme Lemon Cake Mix, and we cook it at 350F for 25-30 minutes, using the toothpick caper. We frost it with juice and zest of one lemon, and 1 cup powdered sugar - more if needed. Puncture the cake many time and pour over cake. Place under broiler watching carefully until sugar melts and looks wet.
