Apricot almond Cake

Apricots or peaches, neither myself or Jim could decipher what i was actually putting in the cake i made yesterday but it sure is tasty! (they were apricots!)

The idea came from the fruity tray bake i was going to make for mum's birthday but my friends dad made a totally amazing cake for her instead. Obviously my need to bake was not satisfied so in a rush yesterday i decided to bake a quick cake.

It is totally lovely and crumbly and i bet it goes perfect with hot custard.

100g Plain Flour
1 heaped tsp baking powder
250g unsalted butter
200g Caster Sugar
100g Light brown muscovado Sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp Almond oil (anything almondy!)
2 apricots
Flaked Almonds

Cream together the butter and sugar (i used an electric whisk for the first time in years, you would have think i'd split the Red Sea how happy i was). Add the dry ingredients, eggs and the rest! mix to a smooth batter.
Pour into a greased cake tin and place the apricots attractively on top! Sprinkle with almonds lovingly.
I baked mine for about 60 minutes (i did forget to look at what time it went in though!). Because of the aga it was rather brown round the edges but it all adds flavor i say! I'm sorry i have no temperatures or anything but the aga is set, i'd say around 180˚C/160˚C fan/350˚F/gas mark 4 (note how i researched that for y'all!!).

Totally yummy even though the fruit did sink, maybe more flour next time even though it was a pretty think mix anyway! If you have any non-sinking fruity/cakey adventures please let me know your secret!!!!

[Once again pictures will be added shortly when i can be bothered to charge my phone sufficiently for usage!]

have a sing song instead

Enjoy the weekend ahead
