It’s apricot season now (hello July) and that means you’re going to get the most amazing juicy sweet apricots at your local grocers now!!! And FYI, size does matter so go for the smaller apricots because they are definitely more flavorful and less tart than the larger ones. I bought a huge bag of apricots the minute I saw them at the store and knew right away that a cake would be in my very near future. Sweet almond cake topped with mouth-watering slightly tart apricots just sounds good, doesn’t it?!?
Just look at those apricots!!! Fuzzy little guys.
That layer of sugar and cinnamon caramelizes on top of the apricots and that makes everything right in the world.
