Lemon Supreme Cake

Note: Lemon cake makes me think of my Mammaw. She used to make the most delicious lemon cake. She would make it in a 9x13 pan and use the end of a wooden spoon to poke giant holes and then pour the glaze all over it. She would give us a piece while it was still warm and you would almost have to eat it with a spoon. My cake isn't nearly as good as my Mammaw's, but you can't buy Mammaw's love at the store.

Lemon Supreme Cake


1 lemon supreme cake mix

1 cup apricot nectar

3/4 cup Crisco oil

4 eggs

1/2 cup sugar


Mix cake mix, sugar, oil and nectar together. Add 1 egg at a time. Bake in Bundt or tube pan at 325 degrees for 1 hour.

Mix 1 cup powdered sugar and juice of 1 lemon. Poke tiny holes in cake and pour over cake while still warm to make glaze.

Speaking of spoons... grab one and join me at Lisa and Lana's blog for more great recipes on Tempt My Tummy Tuesday!
