Rhona Lemon Cake

(by Jane Small—Mom’s brother’s wife) (I have no idea who Rhona might be.)

Mom could make a darn good cake from scratch, but she had no problem with grabbing a box mix and tweaking it a bit. That said, I don’t remember her ever making this cake. It sounds pretty good, though.

1 box Duncan Hines Lemon Cake Mix
3/4 C oil
1/2 C sugar
1 C apricot nectar
4 eggs
1 C powdered sugar
juice from 1 lemon

To do:

Preheat oven to 350F. Mix cake mix, oil, sugar, and nectar. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each. Pour into angel food cake tin. Bake for one hour. Do not turn cake out to cool—only remove outside ring. Pour powdered sugar and lemon juice over cake as it cools.
