Simple and very lemony. Delicious.

"This is a great all purpose cake. In my family, we even use it as a birthday cake. In the summer there is nothing better on a hot day than to pull a piece out of the freezer and eat it. We too had lost the recipe until my sister happened on it in an old cook book she got from our Mom after she passed. We often make it with a white cake mix. It is very hard to not get a wonderful simple cake."

This turned out well! I used raspberry jello powder instead and it came out as a wonderful raspberry lemonade flavor. I iced it with Cool Whip and sprinkled lemon zest on top and this worked well to add a creamy summery touch

I made this to take camping.. I used 3 large eggs instead of 4 medium; no problem.. Everyone loved it!

Very tangy & sweet & easy to make! So so yummy! I look forward to switching up the jello flavors! I used sugar-free jello & it tastes just as flavorful.

I used a large lemon jello. My family loved the cake, and it's very easy to make.

It doesn't specify what size of package to use for the Jello.
