MY MOTHER MADE THIS CAKE MANY TIMES FOR OUR FAMILY OF FIVE TO ENJOY. SHE BAKED SOMETHING EVERY WEEK, AND SO BAKING BECAME MY PASSION. THE COOK BOOK, WHERE THIS WONDERFUL RECIPE IS FOUND, WAS FROM 1942, AND HAS MANY KRAFT INGREDIENTS INCLUDED, BUT THE APRICOT CAKE IS THE BEST OF ALL. IRON SKILLETS ARE THE BEST FOR THIS CAKE. ONCE I NEEDED MORE THAN ONE RECIPE, SO I USED OUR BIG CAMP IRON SKILLET, THEN REALIZED I HAD NO CAKE PLATE LARGE ENOUGH. SEARCHED MY HOUSE AND FINALLY FOUND AN ACRYLIC TRAY, AND TALK ABOUT PANIC!! INVERTING THE CAKE ONTO THE TRAY ALMOST CAUSED DISASTER!! HEAVY!!
