A completed lemon-jello pound cake.I pulled out some old recipes and stared cooking more foods that are not gluten free. I don't get to enjoy them myself, but my family does.

This is a recipe from the 60s or 70s and it is one of our favorites. It was fun making it again and they said it was great. It sure did smell good.

After dinner, I froze the remainder in serving sizes to make it last longer. It's less tempting when out of sight and in the freezer. Gotta watch that waistline.

Ingredients:

  • 1 box lemon Jell-O gelatin 3 oz size
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp lemon extract
  • for the glaze use 1 lemon
  • 1 & 1/2 cup confectioners sugar (approximately)
Ingredients for lemon Jell-O pound cake.
 

Steps:

  1. Dissolve Jell-O in 1 cup hot water and cool.
  2. Jell-O dissolved in water
     
  3. Mix Jell-O, oil, cake mix, eggs, and lemon flavoring together.

  16. Gradually mix the lemon juice with the confectioners sugar until mixture is creamy but not thick. It needs to be a little runny. Add the lemon zest.

  18. When the cake is done, cool it slightly and then remove from the pan onto a cake plate.
  19. While the cake is still hot, spread lemon glaze on top and let it drip down the sides and the center of the cake.
