Family's Favorite Lemon Cake
45 mins (prep 10, cooking 35)

This is my father's favorite lemon cake recipe. What I like about it is that it's easy and tastes even better if you make it the day ahead. I've used lemon and strawberry jello as well with wonderful results. It's wonderful with vanilla ice cream and it freezes really well. Cut it into individual servings and wrap tightly in tin foil and it will last in the freezer for weeks. Of course, it probably won't be around that long.
