This cake was an absolute treat. The Apricot Cake recipe called for Amaretti cookies and since I couldn’t find them, I substituted for Lattemiele Italian style cookies from Trader Joe’s. The best part might be the organic apricots drizzled in St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur.
The downside to baking in the summertime? A really hot kitchen when you have no air conditioning. Thank goodness for ceiling fans and late night thunderstorms to cool off the house!
