A Little Baking

Gentle Friends... you may remember that I acquired a Bundt pan a while ago and was less than happy with it.... in my travel through Consignment shops and Estate sales I have kept a look out for a replacement pan since I certainly I wasn't going to pay upwards of $50.....  this past Saturday I found a really nice Nordic Ware "Bavarian" 10 cup pan that looked to have never been used.....


.... you know if I got a new pan I was going to make a cake.....
... I made my Great Aunt Sue's "Apricot Nectar Cake."   It's a really easy recipe......

Apricot Nectar Cake
1 (18.25 ounce) package lemon cake mix
1/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup apricot nectar
4 eggs

Glaze
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice

1. Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan or Bundt pan. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
2. Combine cake mix with sugar, cooking oil, and apricot nectar. Beat for two minutes with mixer. Add eggs one at a time, beating for 30 seconds after each addition. Pour batter into pan.
3. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan before turning out onto a plate.
4. In a small bowl, mix lemon juice with confectioners' sugar until you reach desired consistency. Drizzle glaze over sides of warm cake.

Dearest Edgar: What a find, there used to be a factory on hiway 55 20 miles from me that made these pans, they have moved somewhere I am not sure, this is a real find they do not I believe make this type any longer.
The cake looks yummy.
