DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl put the yellow cake mix, the package of lemon jello (the small package not the large), the oil and the water. Mix well.
  • Add the 4 eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Pour the batter into a greased one-layer cake pan (9 x 13").
  • Bake for 40 minutes or until the cake tests done with a tooth pick.
  • While the cake is baking, juice the two lemons and combine the juice with the powdered sugar, mixing until all lumps have disappeared.
  • When the cake tests done, remove it from the oven and poke holes in the cake with large meat prongs.
  • Immediately, while the cake is still hot, pour the powdered sugar mixture over the cake and holes, using the back of a spoon to smooth evenly.
  • Let the cake cool before eating.
