Apricot Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

Cassie *


When I took this cake to Church, everyone wanted the recipe...It's very moist, tender and delicious, and one of those cakes that's even better the next day.

Hope you try it...I usually use golden raisins in this cake, but was out...either works...or, if you don't like raisins..leave em out and add more apricots.
