J-E-L-L-O – Even the simplest Jell-O dessert is a joy. Here is one dessert that will take your taste buds one step further.
Dale Begnaud in memory of his mother’s Cajun cooking.
- 1 box white or yellow cake mix
- 1 small box lemon or orange jello
- 2/3 cup water
- 2/3 cup vegetable oil
- 4 eggs
- rind of 1 lemon or orange, grated
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1/4 stick oleo or butter
- 2 lemons, juiced
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a tube pan.
In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, jello, water, vegetable oil, eggs and fruit rind.
Pour into tube pan and bake for 1 hour.
Remove from oven and, using a sharp knife, break away the cake from the edge of the pan. Punch holes around the top of the cake.
For the topping, mix powdered sugar, 1/4 stick of oleo and the juice of the two lemons (or enough orange juice) to make a spreading consistency.
Pour over the top of the cake while still hot and let it cool in the pan.
