apricot cake is the star of summer, so i think we should say 'goodbye' to sunny summer with a fragrant and delicious recipe. apricot cake is well-known, but i added a generous fragrant strawberry jam glaze and almond flakes to make it more special.
it's so fluffy and loose! ideal for summer days or early fall, when you still find fresh and scented apricots. apricot-strawberry combination is "made in heaven", try and you will be convinced.
