  • 1 (18 1/2 oz) box lemon cake mix
  • 1 (1/3 oz) box orange jell-o
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine cake mix and jello into a bowl.
  3. Add water and oil and mix until combined.
  4. Add eggs and beat in one at a time.
  5. Pour into a greased 9x11 cake pan (I find a metal non stick pan works best).
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
  7. When done, punch holes all over the cake using a large fork. Don't worry if the cake starts to get torn up a little. It's not about looks, it's about taste.
  8. Mix together powdered sugar and lemon juice to make a glaze. I like a lot of glaze so I use about 1 cup of powdered sugar and enough juice to make it runny.
  9. Pour glaze all over cake and let rest for at least an hour.
