Jazzed Up Cake Mix


Ok, so I know I've been posting guilt free desserts for the past two days, but it's Friday and I think we all deserve something a little more rich and in the form of a cake. Don't worry it's not loaded with chocolate or butter, it's a really simple recipe that jazzes up a normal cake mix with lemon flavorings and poppy seeds.

OK - so I'm a few days behind. This reminds me of my dad's all-time favorite cake: Apricot Nectar cake.

Then you glaze the still-warm cake with a mixture of powdered sugar and the apricot nectar left in the can to make it even moister. Yummm!

^This recipe isn't for a pound cake. The proportions aren't right for a pound cake.
