If you are looking for a cake that is no fuss this is the one for you, plus apricots is good for you on its own. Imagine having them in a delicious cake topped with whipped cream, now I’m talking. 🙂 Im not a fancy cake or dessert maker but I love trying to make my cakes fancy or at less looking like you worked hard to make them. But who whats to spend all day cooking or baking in the kitchen when you have so much other things to do.
I can’t say enough about staying home and cooking and baking for yourself, sometimes getting your family involved while you are in the kitchen makes for less work. But if you are like me my day starts in the kitchen and ends in the kitchen, and I love it. 🙂 Before you start making this recipe make yourself a cup of hot tea and grab your note book and set down to your computer and watch my video of how to make this delicious Traditional Newfoundland Apricot Cake, you won’t be disappointed.
