Gwen's Lemon Cake

Gwen was my great-grandma Duggan's nursing school friend.  I am told that Gwen was very funny.  She had a beautiful smile and a great laugh.  Thank you for this recipe aunt Sue.  This cake is a family favorite!  It's light, sweet and tart!  So delicious!

Make the icing first

Juice from 2 lemons
1 cup of powdered sugar

In a small bowl, mix thoroughly.

1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 small pkg. lemon jello
4 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup water

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium bowl, combine cake ingredients and beat for 4 minutes.

Pour batter into a 9x13 greased baking dish.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 mins.
Let it stand for 5 minutes.

Prick the cake all over with a large fork

Spoon icing over the top and smooth it in.

Let the cake completely cool before cutting and serving
