Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon soft unsalted butter, for pan
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, divided
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons stevia glycerite (equals 1/2 cup sugar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups blanched finely ground almond flour (6 oz)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 medium apricots, cut in half and pitted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a standard 9-inch pie plate with 1 tablespoon butter.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, 3 1/2 tablespoons of the melted butter (reserving 1/2 tablespoon for later), vanilla, stevia and kosher salt.
  • Add the almond flour, whisking it until very smooth. Whisk in the baking soda.
  • 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.
  • Bake the apricot cake until it's golden and fragrant, and a toothpick inserted in center comes out dry, about 30 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the oven. Place on a wire rack to cool for about 20 minutes before slicing and serving.
