Lemon Cake

The picture is not mine, but I can't find a name to credit the photographer.

I got this recipe from Todd's mom- it is his great Aunt's recipe- I don't know that she created it, just that she always made it.  It's an easy, light dessert and so far everyone that has tried it loves it. I love Aunt Rachel and baking this cake always makes me think of her.

Aunt Rachel's Lemon Cake

1 Lemon cake mix
1 cup oil
1 cup apricot nectar
4 eggs added one a time
1/2 tsp lemon extract
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Mix all ingredients together. Bake at 275-300 for 55 minutes.

Let cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan. Punch holes in the top of cake. While still warm add the glaze made with 1 cup powdered sugar and 4 TBS of lemon juice.
