This was an old favorite of my Mom's cake. Mama was always making a cake. It did not matter.. she'd make a cake once a week. My daddy craved these Apricot Nectar Cakes. Now that I have diabetes, I cannot eat anything but just a very small slice of it. I was trying to find it in here and I was trying to locate it under lemon cakes.This was a favorite of mine..and my daddy's tho when I was growing up. It was, back then, an expensive cake. It was the Apricot Nectar that made it expensive. I was always the one that she told to go fetch it for her in the juice aisle. I use to give up.. until I learned it was usually at the very top of the aisle. I was small and I never thought to look up..
