This cake enters the "disaster" recipes category. Way too sweet even without the icing. The icing quantity was adequate for probably 5 or 6 cakes. The cake ended up a soggy mess, with icing pouring over the plate. I had to lift this soggy mess out of the plate and, of course, it fell apart in the process. Will definitely not make it again.


Good recipe, easy and delicious. I didn't have Apricot Nectar, took a can of Apricots put in blender to make the nectar, also chopped some of the apricots and added to batter. Made it in a 9x13 pan, baked for 35 minutes. DELICIOUS!

Easy and Tasty. No-stick spray worked fine. I used canola oil and reduced it to 1/2 cup since it's thinner than vegetable oil. It's my Dad's favorite, so I made him one for father's day. Everyone gave it a thumbs up.
