Apple and Apricot Surprise
I’ve always been in love with the combination of apple and apricot.
1 lb dried apricots, pre-soaked in water
1 ½ oz brown sugar
4 oz ground almonds
4 oz sugar
6 medium apples, peeled and sliced
4 oz butter, room temperature
2 large eggs
Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
In a small saucepan, cook dried apricots in some water until soft.
Place sliced apples and cooked apricots into a shallow ovenproof dish and sprinkle with brown sugar. Mix well.
Meanwhile, in a medium-size bowl, mix the sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and beat until well combined, then fold in the ground almonds. Spread this mixture over the fruit and bake in the oven for about 45minutes to 1hour.
Eat hot with vanilla ice-cream.
