    1 cup boiling water
    1 small box lemon Jello
    1 box Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Cake Mix
    ¾ cup oil
    4 eggs
    1tsp. lemon extract
    1¾ to 2 cups powdered sugar
    2 tsp. lemon juice


    Grease and flour and 9 x 13 pan. Dissolve Jello in boiling water and put in refrigerator to cool.

    Combine cake mix and oil. Add eggs one at a time mixing well after each. Add cool Jello and lemon extract. Mix well.

    Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes.

    Before baking time is finished, prepare glaze by mixing powdered sugar with lemon juice.

    Add water to glaze a few drops at a time until glaze is thin.

    Adjust tartness or sweetness of glaze by adding more powdered sugar or lemon juice. Thin glaze with water until it runs fast off spoon. When cake comes out of oven, poke many holes with a fork.
    Pour glaze on hot cake and spread evenly.
    May add a tiny bit of lemon zest for decoration
