Lemon Cake

  • 1 Box lemon supreme cake mix (Duncan Hines)
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs—beaten
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice—Bottled is fine

Add the ingredients for the cake to a mixing bowl and mix about 3 minutes with an electric mixer. Pour into a well greased and lightly floured 9×13 glass baking dish.
Bake 50-55 minutes at 325. After cooling 10 minutes, prick the top of cake with a 2 pronged fork, which has prongs separated about one inch.—Like a meat fork.  Holes should be separated about one inch apart over all the surface of the cake.


  • 2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • Pinch of salt

Pour the glaze evenly over the cake.
Glaze will run into the holes with a little left on the top of the cake.
