Pineapple Apricot Cake

Veronica Rainey


Prep time says 1hr 20mins but an hour of the time is soaking the fruit. Easy recipe and a big hit for breakfast brunches in place of coffee cake.
First tried the recipe for a back to school breakfast - big hit... made it for our monthly office breakfast and had several requests for the recipe... worth trying.
