Lemon Cake Friday
Day 5 of the week-long extravaganza!! Here is a recipe from my great-GREAT Aunt Lizzie (let's just say this recipe is quite old, especially considering today was my grandma's 86th birthday!) I've always been a big fan of recipes that involve adding things to boxed cakes. It's such an easy way to get a cake that tastes like it's made from scratch and required lots more effort than it truly did. Enjoy and hope you all had a great Friday!
Aunt Lizzie's Lemon Cake
1 box yellow cake mix
1 package lemon jello (don't get the sugar-free or fat-free or any of that nonsense)
2/3 c. water
3/4 c. vegetable oil
1 tsp. lemon extract
Juice of one lemon
2/3 cup sugar
1. Combine cake mix, box of jello, water, vegetable oil and lemon extract.
2. Add 4 eggs, one at a time, and beat well after each.
3. Bake in a greased and floured bundt pan at 350° F for 40 minutes.
4. Stir together lemon juice and sugar and glaze cake when cool.
