This is an afternoon tea favourite with my friends. The fresh apricots with a cinnamon and sugar dusting make it look as good as it tastes.


Serves: 12 

  • 1 1/2 cups (185g) plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup dry milk powder
  • 2/3 cup (165ml) water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 cups pitted and diced fresh apricots
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar, or to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
