I made this cake with instant lemon pudding instead of the gelatin and it turned out wonderfully! I poked holes every 1" -2" and let the watery glaze run in so the cake has glaze in it when cut it. Delicious!! Everyone ate it up at my father's 80th birthday party!

This exceeded my expectations for a cake mix. No artificial cake mix flavor! I made the cake, just as written, in a Bundt pan. I left out the water in the glaze, which I brushed on with a pastry brush. This is moist, lemony and delicious. My only criticism is the bright yellow color, which advertises "artificial."

I have been searching for this recipe for quite some time, now. VERY similar to one of my aunt's recipes. DELICIOUS!! Only changes I would make is that my cake took only 35 minutes to bake, and don't add the tablespoon of water to the glaze unless absolutely necessary. My glaze was very runny, and pooled around the edges and ran down the sides of the cake, too. Although the outer pieces that got the extra glaze were very tasty, too! :o)
