Several years ago Great-Grandma passed away and I inherited her collection of handwritten recipes. This is one of those receipes. Another use for ripe bananas.

I had bought some apricot preserves for another recipe and had 3/4 of a jar left, which my DH said he didn't like so made this cake. He loved the cake - I didn't tell him there were apricot preserves in it until after he ate it. I will probably be buying more apricot preserves just to make this again.
