When I told Bobby I was going to post this recipe on my blog, he asked me if I really thought it was "blog-worthy." I confess that normally I wouldn't, but I thought it might be fun to start blogging some of my Mom's recipes as a sort of tribute to her. She is actually a really good cook, and not all of her recipes are this easy, but this is a cake she has been making for as long as I can remember and I love it! She used to get so mad at me when I would scrape the lemon icing off the top and leave the cake.
1 box yellow cake mix
1 (3-oz.) box lemon Jello or pudding mix
3/4 cup oil
3/4 cup water
Mix all ingredients together and bake in greased 9x13 pan (or bundt) at 350 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes. Remove and allow to cool for at least 20 minutes. Poke holes with a fork (or thin skewers over the cake.)
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 cups powdered sugar
Mix lemon juice and sugar and drizzle over cake.
(I've seen that some recipes call for lemon cake instead of yellow cake for this recipe. I think this is way too lemon-y.)
