Apricot Snack Cake

"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."

    Great, easy to make recipe! I'd make a double batch next time, as it went so fast. Wonderful with the fresh apricots.

    This was a huge hit! I made it with plumcots, which I mixed into the batter. Turned out great.

    What a delicious cake! I adjusted the recipe a bit by substituting almond extract for the vanilla and adding slivered almonds to the crumbles on top. Everyone in my office wanted the recipe. I also put the apricots on top with crumbles, and they sank into the cake during baking. Next time I may try a combination of brown and white sugar. This cake is very good served warm with vanilla ice cream or a small dollop of whipped cream on top!

It would be hard for me to choose between my two favorite hobbies, cooking and reading, so frequently I compromise and read a cookbook! My husband thinks we have an annex of the public library in our house there are so many books.
