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.

How to Make GOLDIE'S APRICOT NECTAR CAKE (SALLYE)

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 325º

    Butter and flour bundt or tube pan and set aside
  • 2With 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.
  • 3Pour 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
  • 4While 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.
