Moist Lemon Cake


This moist lemon cake recipe has an easy lemon glaze that makes it one of the best desserts for any meal. It is a cake my Grandma made for my mother when she was young. With such an easy recipe my kids can make this to practice their baking skills and learn a passed down recipe.

The cake portion starts with a lemon cake mix and then you add in a few more ingredients. Bake it until done, then prick the top with a fork. Pour the icing over the hot cake and you are done. It is that simple. The lemon glaze icing is quick and easy to prepare with a couple lemons and powdered sugar. The icing melts into the cake making it incredibly moist therefore frosting is unnecessary.
