Originally this cake had a layer of gooey apricots between the cake and crumbs but I wasn't paying attention one day and added them to the cake. My daughter decided she liked better with the apricots in the batter. I am partial to the gooey layer. Either way is good with some whipped cream or ice cream. It is also good made with blueberies, peaches, or a combo of fresh fruits in place of the apricots.
