Apricot Nectar Cake

This super easy "cake mix" cake is tasty and goes over really well.

1 Yellow cake mix (I used a lemon cake mix)
1/3 C white sugar
1/2 C Vegetable oil
1 C Apricot Nectar
4 Eggs - room temp
1 C Icing Sugar
2 Tlbs Lemon Juice

1 - Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan.  Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2 - Combine cake mix with sugar, oil and nectar.  Beat for at least 2 mins.  Add eggs, one at a time and beat  for 30 seconds after each addition.  Pour batter into prepared pan.
3 - Bake for 50 to 60 mins  - test with a toothpick to tell if done.  Cool in pan for 10 mins before turning out onto a plate.
4 -In a small bowl, mix lemon juice with icing sugar until reaching desired consistency.  I make mine very thick so I use more sugar.  Drizzle glaze over top and sides of warm cake.


  1. I looked for apricot nectar the other day in the market, but couldn't find it. Any tips?
