  • 1 box lemon cake mix
  • 1 cup apricot nectar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup apricot nectar for glaze


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Grease bundt pan with shortening.
  • Mix together cake mix, 1 cup apricot nectar, 3/4 cup oil, eggs, and sugar in mixer at medium speed for 3 minutes.
  • Pour mixture into greased bundt pan.
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes.
  • Let cake cool and then place on plate to release cake from pan.
  • Mix together powdered sugar and 1/2 cup apricot nectar.
  • Drizzle glaze on cooled cake and serve.


You can usually find apricot nectar juice in the juice aisle of the grocery store or sometimes the health food section. I have seen it in a glass bottle or a can.
  • Use an electric mixer to insure all ingredients are combined. 
  • Test to make sure cake has finished baking by lightly pressing to see if it springs back. You may also insert a toothpick to see if it comes out clean. 
  • Make sure cake is completely cooled before icing.
