Recipe by frogmum

I found this recipe on the back of a can of SPC Apricots. My whole family loves it. Great for morning or afternoon tea. The kids love this in their lunch boxes or eating it warm. Healthy and nice.

This was a really quick recipe to make, Everything in the one bowl, not much mess and into the oven! A nice simple wintery dessert, would be nice with a dollop of cream on top next time. Thanks frogmum! :)
