Jello cakes are the best. It’s an old-school technique that combines a flavored gelatin mix with the usual cake batter to produce a cake with a delightfully moist texture. This lemony version is bursting with sunny citrus flavor. As you’d expect from a Jello cake, the crumb is beautifully tender. To top it off, the recipe is outrageously simple to make.
Besides including flavored gelatin in the batter, this recipe employs another time-tested technique. Immediately after the cake is baked, you’ll poke holes all over the top and then drizzle a sweet, vanilla-scented glaze over the top. The glaze will run into the holes and soak into the cake giving it even more flavor and moistness.
