Handwritten Recipe Wednesday: Lemon Jello Cake

I had a blast last night at the Warren Newport Library in Gurnee, IL talking about Vintage International Desserts. Many of us were talking about how we liked Jello, too, as a favorite vintage trend. So I found this recipe in one of my boxes this morning.

Mix together:

1 box Lemon Flake Cake Mix (Swans Down) (There are other lemon cake mixes now.)

1 box lemon Jello


3/4 C. water


Add 4 eggs – one at a time – Beat well

3/4 C oil – Beat (I used Mazola)

Put in large pan – Mine was 13 1/2 x 10

Bake 40 or 45 minutes (if glass dish is used doesn’t take quite as long) in 350F oven.

When you take it out of oven – prick all over with fork and while still hot, pour glaze over it.


Mix: 1/2 cup lemon juice, 2 cups powdered sugar, 2 tbsp. melted butter

I served it with Lemon Custard Ice Cream.

Sounds like this woman knew how to do things in a delicious way!
