Summer Cakes

This past weekend my daughter and son in law hosted a going away party for my grandson Shawn.    When I asked what I could bring, my daughter said they had things pretty well covered but cake would be appreciated.  It was going to be a larger group, the weather was going to be hot,  and Shawn's favorite cake is lemon.  I decided to make two: one a luscious lemonade cake from My, and then an old quick recipe from my grandmother dating back to the late 60's or so.  I haven't made this one in years.  But it is a nice summer cake using mixes, takes 10 minutes to put together, and carries well.  People really liked it, so I submit the recipe here.  I sometimes add more lemon juice to the glaze.
1 package lemon cake mix
1 instant lemon pudding mix
3/4 cup oil
3/4 cup cold water
4 eggs
Place above in bowl, beat at medium speed for 5 to 10 minutes.  Pour batter into greased 9x13 pan.  Bake 45 minutes or till done.

While cake is baking prepare glaze:
1/3 cup orange juice
2 cups powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons of oil
When cake is done, prick all over with a fork and pour glaze over warm hot cake.  Let cool.

Easy peasy!  And pretty good, too!
