Apricot Cake


The cookbook Breakfast on the Battery, A Charleston Chef’s Collection of Breakfast and Tea Recipes by Connie Stahl, inspired me for this recipe. I love this book, it’s a collection of great recipes.


Apricot Cake


This cake is amazing, I really enjoyed making it.

To begin, you have to make the first of 2 batters. Pour it in the pan and place the dried apricots on top. Cook for 25 minutes. While it’s cooking, prepare the 2nd batter, and cook again for 30 minutes.

It’s an easy and delicious cake recipe.

I love the apricot-lemon-vanilla combo, it’s scrumptious! My husband and I love this cake!

This apricot cake is perfect for breakfast or any occasion!
