I did have my doubts as to how this cake would turn out, having so few ingredients. But it turned out really well, I used a vanilla cake mix and added a 1/2 teaspoon of lemon rind to the mix. I did have to weigh out the cake mix and used 1 1/2 tins of apricots ~ as the weight of the cake/apricots did not coincide with the weights here .... no problem's, it all worked well, so I must have done something right! The cake did turn out really well, although very subtle in taste and when completely cooled was very moist, but overnight settled and gave the cake a great texture. I iced my cake with a cream cheese icing (using some apricot) juice and topped with some dehydrated tangerines. This was a really nice cake to make, and cake be made with ingredients from the pantry. I am going to try this with a different fruit next time, as I think this would suit any canned fruit.
