Apricot cake is the Austrian equivalent to Apple Pie. A must in every household, every weekend during season.
I spotted the first apricots at Sobey's the other day and nudged Lauren to make a cake. I love apricot cake. We dug out a recipe from Austria, Lauren adjusted the details to the gluten free flour mix that's such a hit at GF Patisserie and the result is nothing short of fantastic.
Almost similar to an Angel food cake, just a bit tastier, thanks to the lemon zest and of course the apricots.
But I ask you, why did I ask for my favorite summer cake, if all I get is two (2) slices??? I did not mean to give GF Patisserie another great idea, I wanted a cake!!
This is maybe the tough part of the whole thing with me being on the inside. I can taste it all, a piece here, a slice there, but so much of the great cakes sell by Friday, Saturday and poor me? Nada, nichts, nothing.
Enjoy your weekend.
