Introduction: Apricot Rum Bundt Cake
In the spring, apricots are a delicious addition to baked goods. When added to a rich, moist bundt cake, they mirror the dried fruit cakes of winter gone past. Add a splash of rum to the batter and top the baked cake with powdered sugar to pay homage to the cold season gone by and spring renewed.
