The glaze is my favorite part. I'll give you a super great tip: Keep a supply of lemon cake mixes on hand, and if you are ever needing a dessert really fast, just whip up a lemon cake and add this glaze to the top. Seriously - people ask me for the recipe all the time and I just have to laugh. :D
Or, you could always make this Lemon Poppyseed Cake, too - it's always a crowd pleaser. I just sometimes find I am fresh out of poppy seeds! (Like today, I had to run get some real quick.) Haha :)
1 box lemon cake mix
1 (small) box instant vanilla pudding
1 cup water
1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup poppy seeds
2 cups powdered sugar
2 TBS lemon juice
2 TBS water (start with one first, to see how thick it is)
Combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, water and oil together in a large bowl. Beat on low speed for 30 seconds, and then on medium speed for 2 minutes. Fold in poppy seeds.
Pour into a greased pan.
Bake at 350 F for 30 - 35 minutes or until toothpick in center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack.
Whisk together powdered sugar, lemon juice and water until smooth. Drizzle over cooled cake.
