Lemonade Cake

This is one of my very favorite summer desserts. My mom always makes it and I'm attempting it today with some dinner with friends.

1 lemon cake mix
1 small pkg. instant lemon pudding
4 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup water
2 cup powdered sugar
1 (6 oz) can frozen lemonade, thawed

Combine the cake mix, pudding, eggs, oil and water. Beat with electric mixer for 2 minutes. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Pour cake mixture into a greased and floured 9x13 inch pan. Bake for 30 minutes. While cake is still warm, combine the powdered sugar and thawed lemonade. Beat for 1 minute. Pierce the top of the warm cake with a fork about every three inches. Pour lemonade mixture over the top, evenly. Bake for 5 minutes. Cool on cake rack. Serve with whipped cream on top, if desired. Refrigerate remaining cake.*

*Best to make the night before since it is so much better cold.

So, I talked to my mom today since the cake sort of fell in the middle and really didn't turn out that great.

Overcook the cake until it is completely done and wait until it is mostly cooled, but still warm before you start sticking with the fork (as mine sort of had massive holes in it from pokes).

Pour the lemonade mixture over very slowly, not using all of it if it looks like it is soaking in. Bake and you should have a better cake!
