Lemon Cake aka Aunt Blanche's Lemon Squares

I wanted to post some new recipes since Thanksgiving is coming up soon. Most of these are not gluten or allergen free, just plain old run of the mill stuff. But they are favorites in our house. You can make it gluten free by making it with a boxed cake mix like Betty Crocker Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix.

1 box yellow cake mix
1 box lemon jello
5 eggs
¾ cup water
½ cup vegetable oil
2 tbsp. lemon extract
Combine ingredients and bake on 350°
Follow box instructions for baking pan size and bake time
Makes about 24 cupcakes.
If making as cake, butter and flour pans before pouring in batter. Make in a large square cake pan or bunt pan. 

Glaze while still warm and then let rest until cool and glaze has set

¼ cup lemon juice
2 cups powdered sugar

Aunt Blanche always made these in a large rectangular cake pan and then cut them into square, wrapped them individually in plastic wrap and served them to all the ankle biter when they come (even when the ankle biters grow taller than her). They were and are one of my hubby's favorite things.
