How to make it

  • In mixer bowl, with an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy
  • Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition
  • Whisk flour and salt in a medium bowl
  • Add flour alternately with the sour cream
  • Mix well
  • Add the apricot nectar, mixing well
  • Dissolve 1/4 teaspoon soda in 1 tablespoon hot water, add to batter
  • Mix well
  • Add the extracts, mixing well
  • Pour batter into a greased and lightly floured tube pan
  • Bake in a 300 degree oven for ABOUT 1 hour and 20 minutes
  • Since ovens vary in temperature, test for doneness. There will be no indentation when cake is pressed lightly with finger, OR insert a toothpick, and when it comes out clean, it is done. Also cake will slightly pull away from pan
  • Remove from oven, cool for about 10 minutes
  • Turn onto cake plate
  • *May glaze with a mixture of apricot nectar, powdered sugar and toasted almonds.....just mix enough nectar and powdered sugar to make a fairly thin glaze, add toasted almonds, and *spoon-drizzle* on crown of cake, letting it drip down the sides
  • CAKE IS ALSO DELICIOUS WITH NO GLAZE

    Sure could have used this when we lived in San Jose...we had a very prolific apricot tree in our back yard then. Hope to have another one in our retirement soon...so thanks for this!
