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

  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.
