Apricot, Saffron and Almond Cake.

Sparrow Crumbs!
Made a cake, from a recipe in the Guardian, but swapped tinned peaches for apricots. This is it before a dusting of icing sugar. Tasted rather good, if I say so myself.
Is it just me or are apricots usually a dissapointment? I always expect some juicy ungent sweetness that will transport me to Egypt or a Greek island and end up with a mouthful of dusty Stroud Green High Road.
