Ingredients

How to make it

  • *I make mine in a 13x9 inch pan covered in Reynold's Non-Stick Aluminum. You can use a bundt or angelfood pan.
  • In a large bowl, mix the cake mix, eggs, oil and the water until well-blended.
  • Add 4 TB of juice
  • Bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees until cake is golden brown and firm.
  • Remove cake from oven and cool.
  • Mix the powdered sugar with the lime or lemon juice until it is smooth and pourable. (You can add your zest at this time.)
  • Poke holes over the cake and pour the icing over and let the icing set for a good hour or serve! (I let the cake sit on my countertop for a few hours before serving as its great at room temperature.)
  • This is a really nicely glazed cake and just wonderful for any spring or summertime events. It also makes great cupcakes whic hare perfect for Mother's Day brunches.
