Lemon Jell-O Pound Cake

Silver Post Medal for All Time! 418 Posts

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 for lemon Jell-O pound cake.


  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.
  4. Beat with mixer until smooth.
  5. Mixing the batter for pound cake.

  6. Spray a tube pan with Pam cooking spray.
  7. Pour mixture into the pan.
  8. A lemon pound cake mixture, ready for baking.
  9. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  10. A baked pound cake still in the pan.
  11. While cake is baking, make the lemon glaze.
  12. Grate the rind of the lemon.
  13. Grating the lemon peel from a lemon.
  14. Juice the lemon. The amount of juice needed varies on the size of the lemon. This was a large lemon and I had more juice than I needed.
  15. Juicing lemon.

  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.
  17. Mixing the icing for the top of the cake.
  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.
  20. A close up of a iced lemon-Jello pound cake.
  21. Cool then serve.
  22. A slice of lemon-Jello pound cake.

  23. This cake freezes well and is good to have on hand for later.

This is the best cake. Simple to make and taste heavenly. I am so glad it freezes well. I am a single person and making a whole cake just for me is a waist. And I did mean WAIST, because that is where it all ends up if I make a cake.


Now I can cut it up and freeze it in small portions. Out of sight, out of mind. A piece here and there is not so bad. Thanks for finding this recipe from your old files.
