Recipe by Clever Cooking

This cake is one of our family favorites. Served warm or cold, with ice cream, whipped cream or just plain. My Grandma first made this cake when she had an abundant supply of apricots on her hands and decided to use apricots in place of the pineapple in pineapple upside-down cake...it was an instant hit and now that you've heard about it, you’ll have to give it a try...maybe it'll become one of your favorites too.
