An easy spring dessert full of apricot flavor! This Upside Down Brown Sugar Apricot Cake is the perfect spring dessert!
This cake almost made me break my Lenten resolution. I decided to give up cake for Lent! I know! How could I? Well because cake, chocolate and all desserts really are my weakness. I figured it was something good to abstain from.
It is hard but it is also rewarding! My jeans fit better and I have realized I won’t actually die if I don’t eat cake or sweets! All of my daily cravings have almost gone so I feel better too!
This weeks Sunday Supper is hosted by Anne from Simple and Savory. We are giving you ALL the Spring recipes that you can handle. So make sure you check them out at the bottom!
When making this cake I chose to use canned apricots but you could definitely use fresh. When I lived in NC I always had a very hard time trying to find fresh apricots so I wanted to make this Upside Down Brown Sugar Apricot Cake with something everyone could use. So I went with canned. ENJOY!
