Easy to make. Even easier to eat! I followed the recipe exactly. It will seem like the cake is drowning after you add the lemon jell-o the but the cake soaks it up while resting in the fridge and becomes very moist. A great summer dessert recipe.
I was not happy with this recipe. The only thing I changed about it was making it as a 9x13 cake. It was a little soggy and the topping was too runny. I took it to a picnic with a lot of people and only half the cake was eaten. I will not make this one again.
this is a keeper i dont know how can you mess it up its that simple. its my husbands and my favorite. you can also change up the flavors of the gelatin and pudding if you are bored with lemon. i found it couple years ago on kraftfoods.com
GREAT! I have made this 7 times and everyone wants the recipe. My wife can eat one alone. The only change I made is I used the Moist Lemon cake mix. It's easy and great. Vick
I love lemon anything usually but I bet this woudl be wonderful if you used ( home made) lemon curd instead of the pudding mix…it has more of a tangyness to it than the lemon pudding does. I may have to try that this coming summer..
Very good and moist. Lots of flavor. My only problem was getting the one cake to release from the pan after sitting with the Jello. It stuck and cracked due to the stickiness. However, I managed to cover it with the "icing" and all was well again. I'm trying to figure out what other flavors I could make with this idea now.
