I made this tonight & it was wonderful! I nixed the powdered milk & water and used 1/2 c of apricot nectar instead. Cake has a great flavor. My only teeny tiny complaint was the glaze, too much butter. I ended up having to add another cup of powdered sugar & more lemon juice to help out with that. I would suggest no more than 1/4 c of butter, but that's just my opinion. Don't hesitate to make this cake, you won't be disappointed!!
