Apricots Layer Cake

@under_baked

בשיא הכנות, מסיבה לא ברורה אף פעם לא יצא לי לאכול משמשים. לא טריים ולא מיובשים 🤷‍♂️. מה שכן, ממש מצא חן בעיני הצבע הכתום בוהק של המחית 🙂 ובתוך העוגה החמיצות דווקא השתלבה מעולה! אחלה עוגה לקיץ 😋 . . #bakingvlog #shortcake #apricotcake #פוריו #פוריוישראל #עוגות #אפייה #עוגתשכבות #whippedcreamcake #משמש

The first time I ever tried apricots was actually during making this layer cake. I recommend to increase or decrease the sugar amounts, needed for the coulis preparation, to better balance the sourness to your taste. This is such a wonderful summer fruit cake; I highly recommend giving it a try!
