Tried 'n' True: A cool glass of lemonade — in cake form

My mother-in-law, Bauneta, was always cooking when Gene and I got married.

She was such a wonderful lady and a great cook. She always took this cake to reunions or anywhere she was going. It is easy to make.

In the summer, when it is so hot, and you want a glass of lemonade — well this is it, only in a cake form. It seems to cool you down.

Lemonade Cake

1 box lemon gelatin

1 cup hot water

• Mix together and let cool.

4 eggs

1 box Lemon Supreme cake mix

3⁄4 cup oil

• Mix cake mix, eggs and oil for two minutes at medium speed.

• Add cooled gelatin a little at a time. Mix well.

• Pour into a 9- by 13-inch prepared pan.

• Bake 350 degrees for 30 minutes.


1 6-ounce can frozen lemonade, thawed

1⁄2 cup powdered sugar, sifted

• Mix well.

• Take cake out of oven and poke holes with meat fork close together on top of cake. Be sure to go completely over the cake.

• Pour lemonade mixture over the top of cake. Let cool.
