There’s something wonderful about baking tart fruit into sweet batter. Examples? Apple pie made with Granny Smith apples, or cranberry cake.
This almond flour apricot cake is another great example. The combination of the sweet batter and the tart apricots is simply irresistible!
I usually serve this cake as dessert, but really, it’s wholesome and healthy enough that I sometimes serve it for breakfast, especially on the weekend.
You can keep completely cooled leftover cake in the fridge for 4-5 days, in an airtight container on paper towels (to absorb extra moisture). Gently heat in the microwave, 10 seconds on 50% power for each slice.

- Transfer the batter to the prepared pan. Use a spatula to spread evenly.
- Place 7 apricot halves on top, cut side down, gently pressing them into the cake (the 8th apricot half is a bonus for the cook!). Brush the tops of the apricots with the remaining 1/2 tablepsoon of melted butter.
