    When you remove this Lemon Poke Cake from the oven, poke holes about a half inch deep all over the cake — as many holes as you can. Then pour icing over the cake right away. This unique technique will pleasantly surprise.

My Lemon and More Lemon Poke Cake Recipe

1 box (regular size) cake mix, any brand
1 box (small size) lemon gelatin
3/4 cup vegetable oil, fresh
3/4 cup water, tap is fine
4 eggs (hope you have a chicken)
2 cups confectioner’s sugar
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 3 lemons

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 9-by-13-inch pan; set aside.

Mix well the cake mix, lemon gelatin, oil and water; add eggs one at a time and stir the thing very well. I use a wooden spoon. You can use your mixer if you want. Too many dishes to wash!

Pour into prepared pan. I always use glass, but you can use metal. Just be sure your pan is extremely clean.
