This was one of my mothero-in-law Goldie's signature cakes. I haven't made this in years, but found the recipe tucked into one of my cookbooks so thought I would give it a whirl and see if it tasted as good as my memory thinks.

Ingredients

1 box
lemon flavored cake mix
1/2 c
granulated sugar
1 c
apricot nectar
1/3 c
cooking oil
4 large
eggs

GLAZE INGREDIENTS

2 Tbsp
lemon juice
1 c
confectioners (powdered) sugar
1/4 c
apricot nectar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 325º

Butter and flour bundt or tube pan and set aside
2
With electric mixer, beat together cake mix, sugar, oil and 1 cup apricot nectar in large bowl.

Continue to mix with electric mixer, adding eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
3
Pour into prepared bundt or tube pan and spread out evenly.

Bake in 325º preheated oven for 1 hour.

Test cake for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the thickest part. If it comes out clean, the cake is done.

Let cool for about 5 minutes in pan, then gently run thin knife or spatula around edges and turn out onto serving plate
4
While cake is still warm, drizzle glaze over it.

To make glaze, Whisk together confectioners sugar, lemon juice and 1/4 cup apricot nectar until well blended.

Optional you can punch small holes in cake to let the glaze penetrate down into the cake, but I never do that.
