Lemon Drop Cake

I found this recipe on 'Just a Pinch' website.  It's a great resource for home cooking type recipes.  I have made a similar cake to this using Jello mix rather than pudding.  The reviews on this one rave about how moist it is because of the addition of buttermilk.  I made it in my Nordicware Wildflower pan but the design didn't show well. 


1 Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe lemon cake mix
1 small package dry instant Jello Lemon Pudding mix
1 cup water
1/3 cup lemon juice (fresh or bottled)
1 cup water
1/3 cup oil
3 eggs
1 cup buttermilk

The ingredients are the same as the box ingredients with using 1/3 cup lemon juice for part of the water and adding 1 cup of buttermilk.  Mix all ingredients together and pour into a pan sprayed with Pam.  Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.  Make sure the center is done.  Turn onto plate and poke holes and drizzle glaze over cake while warm.

1 to 2 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice

Mix together and drizzle over cake while warm.
