Luscious Lemon Cake

Luscious Lemon Cake created by HOUSEMANAGER Charle

This is the lightest, most moist cake! And delicious, too! I always get requests for it, and the recipe. You can change the flavors of the cake, the Jell-O, and the pudding, too! How about a blue Jell-O cake, and vanilla pudding in the fosting, tinted with pink with food coloring for a baby shower? And with sugar free Jell-O's and Lite Cool Whip, not much guilt eating it, either!

    This was a nice variation on jello cake. We did find it a bit soggy, so next time we probably won't use all of the jello and see if those results suit us better. I have only ever topped jello cake with cool whi before and I liked the topping done this way.

    I made this for a diabetic friend of mine. both she and her son are diabetics and I was able to make this for them as a treat. I did make two small changes. I baked it in a 9X13 pan, and I also left out the confectioners sugar. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.
