Simple Recipe Saturday - The Sophisticated Dessert Edition

Are you a "Lady Who Lunches"?  Yeah, no... 

Me either. 

But I have a recipe for a cake that reeks of sophistication and elegance. Something the "together" mom might bring to the potluck dinner. Or something that you might even see on the menu of one of those tony tea rooms, or wherever the hell all those ladies go to lunch. 

But before you panic and think you're in the wrong place, I have good news! It's super easy. SUPER easy. All the taste of homemade, yet only half the work!  Or even less than half!

So, here is my recipe for Lemon Apricot Cake.
1 pkg. lemon cake mix
3/4 c. oil
1 c. apricot nectar
1/2 c. sugar
4 eggs

Mix the above ingredients, pour into a lightly greased bundt pan and bake for 1 hour (more or less) at 325 degrees.

Glaze: one c. powdered sugar and 1 or 2 teaspoons of lemon juice. I usually just kind of eye it. I start with one teaspoon of the juice, stir, and add more until the mixture seems appropriately glaze-like. 

Invert cake onto cake plate and drizzle with the glaze. I like to go heavy on the drizzling. 



  1. First of all- sounds delicious.

    second of all - extra points if you can name a Broadway show with "ladies who lunch" in it.

    it's aptly called Company, by steven sondheim

  2. yummmmmm bundt cake.

    I used to be a lady who lunched...whatever happened to that lady?

  3. Oh, I like the easy cakes that sound fancy!

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Can't wait to try this Deb.

    Of course I lunch ... does McDonalds count?

  5. I've heard of this species, the "ladies that lunch," I'm pretty sure swallowing a lean cuisine whole does not put me on the same level.

    Love the cake recipe - and I can totally make that PKU friendly - thanks lady!!
