Fabulous Food: Apricot cake with lemon glaze

This recipe is sooooo easy and sooooo good! If you only have a few minutes and want to make a delicious dessert, this cake fits the bill. 

Apricot Cake with Lemon Glaze


1 box yellow cake mix                                 2 tsp. lemon extract
3/4 c. vegetable oil                                        4 eggs
3/4 c. apricot juice                                      

Mix all ingredients and pour into a greased and floured bundt pan.  Cook at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes.  Let cake cool and drizzle the lemon glaze all over the cake.

Directions to make the lemon glaze:

Combine *1/2 cup lemon juice with 1 and 1/2 cups of confectionery sugar.  Mix well and spoon over cake. 

* Unless the whole cake is going to be eaten in one sitting, I like to reserve the glaze and use on individual slices.  Also, if you like a thicker glaze, decrease the lemon juice to 1/4 cup instead of 1/2 cup. Add additional juice until it becomes your desired consistency.
