My husband says this is the best lemon cake he's ever eaten. A cake mix and lemon gelatin make it a breeze to prepare.

"Delicious! I used applesauce for half the oil, and it still tastes rich, although slightly heavier than your usual cake from a mix. I used a French Vanilla cake mix (that's what I had on hand), and then needed to add in about half a teaspoon of lemon extract. I also used milk instead of water ( why not add a little more nutrition, right?) I did not make the glaze.

I made a "trial cake", then decided to make it exactly the same for Easter dinner."

"Is the glaze supposed to melt and run off?"

"A really delicious, moist lemon cake that looks pretty too. Found this recipe in the spring and made it for the first time...have made it at least 6 times since. Everyone just loves it...even people who aren't real lemon lovers. And it's so easy to can make it at the spur of the moment with things you usually have in your pantry."
