Units: Metric / (Units: US)


  • 10 apricots
  • 150 grams / (5 1/3 ounces) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 200 grams / (7 ounces) sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 200 grams / (7 ounces) sugar to caramelize
  • 5 eggs


    Step 1

    1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC / (350ºF). Place 200 grams / (7 ounces) sugar in a saucepan and let the sugar caramelize over low until it stays with a brownish color. Turn off the heat and grease a round cake pan (25 x 6 centimeters / (9 3/4 x 2 1/3 inches)) with the caramelized sugar. Cut 6 apricots in half and remove the kernel. Place them in the bottom of the prepared pan and set aside.

    Step 2

    1. In an electric mixer beat on medium speed the eggs and the sugar until obtain a creamy and homogeneous texture. Then, add the cinnamon, without stop beating. Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the flour mixed with the baking powder. Finally, fold with a spatula the remaining apricots cut into small pieces.

    Step 3

    1. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake until it starts to gain color (just like on the picture) and in the middle is a little bit higher than the rest of the cake, about 40 to 45 minutes (the time depends on the oven).

    Step 4

    1. Remove the cake from the oven and unmold onto a plate. Let cool to room temperature and serve.
