1 (18 1/4 oz.) lemon cake mix
1 (3 oz.) Jell-O instant lemon pudding mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 cup water
1/4 cup poppy seeds (or to taste)
2 lemons, juiced
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease bundt pan or a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with shortening and lightly flour.

Beat cake mix, pudding mix, oil, eggs and water on low speed about 30 seconds, then increase to medium speed and mix 3 minutes. If mixing by hand, beat about 4 minutes. Mix in the poppy seeds.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake between 35-55 minutes, depending on the size of your pan or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. When cake is done and still hot, poke holes all over and pour the *glaze over it. Cool 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely on a wire rack.

For glaze, mix the juice of the lemons with the powdered sugar. It should be of a thin consistency. Serves 8-10
