I have been making this cake for years and ALWAYS receive LOTS of compliments. The cake is very moist and the glaze tastes awesome! The only difference between my original recipe and Glenda's is I have never add oil to the glaze and I also glaze when cake is completely cooled.

I've made this cake for 25 years. It's our family's traditional birthday bundt. My mom still uses the apricot nector, but I prefer GUAVA nector. It really makes this cake taste moist and sweet. I won't ever turn down a slice with apricot nector, however. We use Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme brand.

This cake is so delicious! I get the apricot nectar in the Mexican food section of the grocery store; it is in cans like soda pop. It is so moist and the glaze has such a delightful zing!
