Introduction: Pecan-apricot Cake

This is an easy cake to make in which you can vary what kind of dried fruit or nuts you want to use.

Step 1: Ingredients & Materials

Ingredients:

80 g(grams) unsalted butter

250 g sugar

2 eggs

190 g flour

1 3/4 teaspoon baking powder

pinch of salt

40 g chopped pecans (or a different nut)

180 g chopped dried apricots (or another dried fruit)

1,7 dl (deciliter) milk

butter for greasing and non stick paper

materials:

mixing bowl and some extra bowls

mixer

22 cm cake spring form pan

an oven (obviously)

Step 2: Preperations

I usually grease the spring form first and than add nonstick paper. This will make the cake come out perfectly without sticking to the sides.

Step 3: Adding Ingredients

Start by preheating your oven to 180 C (celcius)

Add the butter and sugar to the mixer and mix together.

Beat your eggs before you add them to the mixer.

Mix untill you get a pale creamy substance

Step 4: Add the Rest

Add the remaining ingredients to the mixer.

mix for 1 minute on the lowest speed untill everything is blended.

Step 5: The Baking

Add the mixture to the cake pan and spread evenly.

Bake the cake at 180 C for an hour.

Check if the cake is done by sticking a cake tester( or bbq stick) in the middle of the cake, if it comes out clean the cake is done. (otherwise put back in for 5 more minutes and check again)

Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes

Remove from pan and let it cool further.

Enjoy :)
