#3369 - Glazed Lemon Poke Cake

(by Aunt Eileen [Knouse] Carter)

Batter: 1 box Duncan Hines yellow cake mix; 1 - 3oz. box lemon Jell-O gelatin; 3/4 cup water; 4 eggs; 3/4 cup canola oil

Glaze: 2 cups Domino's powdered sugar; juice of 2 lemons; 1 tsp. lemon zest

In a mixer add yellow cake mix, lemon Jell-O powder, water, eggs and canola oil--beat until mixed, then beat on medium speed for 4 minutes. Pour batter into a greased and floured 9 x 13 cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-38 minutes--test with a toothpick for doneness. While cake is baking, in a bowl add powdered sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest--stir until mixed. Taste--if you want more lemon flavor add more lemon zest and stir again. If too sour, add a little more powdered sugar and stir again. Remove cake from oven and use a large meat fork to poke holes all over the top of the warm cake. Spread the glaze all over the top of the cake so some of the glaze soaks down into the holes. Cool completely.
