Turn the mixer to med.-high and graduall ad 3/4 cup of the granulated sugar, producing a thick, pale mixture that resembles beaten egg yolk. Turn the mixer to low and add 1/4 cup of water and vanilla. Gradually add the flour mixture, continuing to beat until incorporated. 4. Using clean beaters, beat the egg whates at medium-high speed until thick. Gradually add the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar, beating until stiff peaks form and the meringue looks glossy. 5. Stir 1/3 of the meringue mixture into the batter to lighten it, then fold in the remainder. Pour batter into bundt pan. Place in the oven and bake until a tester comes out clean and the center of the cake springs back to the touch. (about 25 min.) Transfer to a rack and cool for 30 to 40 minutes. 6. In a small bowl, make a glaze by whisking together the lemon juice and confectioner's sugar. Set aside for 5 min. Remove cake from the pan, place on rack over pan and spoon glaze over cake. If desired, garnish each serving with sliced apricots.
