Apricot Sauce Cake
(Tourta Me Verikoko)
What You Need:
  • ¾ cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons double-acting baking powder
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk

  • How To Cook:
    1. In a small pan, combine apricots, water, and ½ cup sugar; bring to a boil. Cover and simmer gently for 20 minutes. Puree mixture in blender or food processor, or press through a food mill.

    6. Pour batter into a greased and floured 9-inch square pan. Spoon apricot sauce evenly over batter.

    7. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until cake tester comes out dean and cake begins to pull away from sides of pan. Serve warm.
