Apricot Caramel Cake - THB #21


This is the selected cake for our 21st bake at The Home Bakers ( THB ) where the group is currently baking from the book, Coffee Cakes by Lou Seibert Pappas. Though the original recipe uses plum, we can still have a choice of other stone fruits to be used like apricots, nectarines and peaches. I have used apricots and baked this using individual tart cases. My fellow group members have already baked this last month and you can also have a look at theirs over here. I got a little curious when i read that Joyce had described it as waffle like kind of texture, Mich says it is bread like and Emily, the hostess for this bake described it as shortcake like..hahaha...Yes,  it is a 'short' cake and comes with a light nut streusel topping. No raising agent nor egg separations , the cake is quite firm and dense, maybe it's meant to be that way... For full recipe, please visit Emily's blog

  15. Hi Lena,

    Based on the recipe, I'm guessing this cake will be more like a tart than a cake. Showed Ryan picture of the cake in the book and he didn't like it. So I have decided not to bake this :p

    Your mini-short-cakes look cute!
