Lemon Cake

This recipe has been in the family for years, a neighbor of my grandparents used to make it when I was little and then my grandmother and other relatives started making it too. It’s pretty much a staple to most family celebrations on my dad’s side of the family. When in doubt? Lemon cake wins the bout. Or something like that.

  • Bake according to package instructions



  • 1 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • ¾ cup lemon juice


  • Combine ingredients and mix until smooth
  • Pour glaze onto cake while cake is still hot
  • Poke holes in cake after glaze is on.
