Crumb cake with fresh orange zest that adds a hint of tartness to this sweet apricot cake.
Dietary Fiber: 2g
Having read the previous reviews and loving both orange flavor and apricots, I had high hopes for this recipe. I was really disappointed with this cake. I made it exactly per instructions and the cake part came out dry and dull-tasting, while the "crumbs" and glaze were cloyingly sweet. In fact, the crumbs were more like gooey, wet sugar rather than crumbly. Maybe using softened rather than melted butter and upping the ratio of flour to sugar would have helped but overall, this cake tasted awful. I ended up throwing it in the garbage. With the price of food, don't waste your time and ingredients on this dud.
No one in my family likes apricots, so I made this with canned diced peaches and it was very good. Next time, I will try cinnamon in place of the nutmeg. Also, I used reserved peach liquid for the glaze, but I couldn't taste the peach at all, so I would think that milk or cream would work just as well.
I made this cake for my bridge group and they all commented on how very good it tasted. Perfect with coffee.
My 12 yr old grandaughter made this herself yesterday. It is wonderful! So easy, fast and good. Even better this morning. Love having recipes she can make for us when she comes. She doesn't get to cook at home.

Caramel and cake. The subtle sweetness of the pound cake combined with the browned butter and toasty sugar flavor in the caramel sauce icing creates a dessert well worth the time to make it.
