Apricot slice with marjoram - and I didn’t slice it following the conventional way. It’s just that I wanted the bigger slice for me, and the rest for the guests :-) This type of cake is very easy to make, and you can use any fruits you like, from apples, apricots or cherries to grapes, plums and quince. You mix eggs, sugar, milk, sunflower oil, vanilla and baking powder, et voila. You have a perfect batter, that you pour in to a baking tray, then add your fruits, and bake at 180C for around 40 minutes. You can serve it with ice cream, or just as it is.
When they are in season, apricots are very popular back home. We use them a lot in baking, such as this easy cake, or an apricot ice cream cake, but also in savoury dishes with chicken or in pork kebabs. Their tanginess, if you use less ripe ones, goes so well with meat. We also make jams and compotes for the winter, and in those parts of the country where they are in plentiful supply, we dry them by cold smoking. Oh..and if, after all this, we still have some around, then we make an apricot brandy :-) nothing goes to waste.
Have a wonderful long weekend my friends!
