My Mother made a Jello cake for my grandfather all she would do is us a box cake and bake it like the box said then when the cake was cooled she would make up a box of Jello and and then mother would get a wooden spoon she would use the handle and make holes all over the cake and then mother would pure the Jello in the holes and when it was dune mother would put it in the Fridge for 1 hour and it was realy good. hope someone makes this.

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.

I grew up eating this cake with the exception of using the large lemon jello and I always add a tsp of vanilla flavoring. Lastly, I add about a tbsp of lemon zest to my glace and I always bake this cake in a bundt pan. I absolutely love this cake as much as I love all the cakes that I bake that are made from scratch. I highly recommend making this cake.

Can't believe how delicious this cake turned out with so little effort. Only change I made was to use lemon cake mix. I always have fresh squeezed lemon juice/zest in the freezer and used 1/4 c. with the conf. sugar topping. This is now my favorite lemon cake recipe.
