Lemon Angel Crunch Cake



  • 1 (16 ounce) box angel food cake mix
  • 3/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut, toasted
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, divided (about 3 lemons)
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 (3 ounce) box lemon gelatin
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Pour batter into ungreased Rectangular Baker, spreading evenly.
  3. Bake 35-40 minutes or until top is golden brown and cracks appear dry. (Cake should be firm to the touch; do not under-bake.) Carefully turn baker upside down onto Stackable Cooling Rack; cool 45 minutes. (Do not remove cake from baker.)
  4. Spread coconut in even layer over bottom of baking pan; bake at 350 degrees F for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown and evenly toasted, stirring once after 8 minutes.
  5. Remove to cooling rack; cool completely. Set aside.
  6. Juice lemons using Juicer; set juice aside. Using Nylon Fork or metal skewer, poke holes in cake about 1 1/2 inches deep and 1/2 inch apart.
  7. In Small Micro-Cooker, microwave water on HIGH 2-3 minutes or until boiling. Add gelatin to water; stir 2 minutes or until completely dissolved. Stir in 1/4 cup of the lemon juice. Slowly pour gelatin mixture evenly over cake.
  8. In Small Batter Bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice; spread evenly over cake. Sprinkle coconut over icing. Refrigerate 3 hours.
