Easy Lemon Jello Cake

1 lemon cake mix
4 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup boiling water
1 box lemon jello

Add jello to boiling water, stirring for about 2 minutes until jello is completely dissolved. Allow to cool. Then combine cake mix, eggs, oil, and jello mixture. Beat until well blended and smooth, about 3 to 4 minutes. Pour batter into a greased and floured 9x13-inch cake pan. Bake for 35 minutes at 350° or until cake tests done. Remove cake from oven and cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Punch the cake full of small holes with a large fork. Pour lemon glaze (see recipe below) over the entire cake. Allow cake to finish cooling before serving. Store leftover cake in the refrigerator.

Lemon Glaze:
Combine juice of one lemon (about 4 tablespoons) with 2 cups powdered sugar. Stir until sugar is well dissolved. Glaze will be runny!

The lemon will produce more juice if you roll it on the countertop until it's soft before cutting it.

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
