Apricot Cake is a must on my dessert table, especially when my sons are visiting for the holidays. Even though they like most of my baked goods, this one is their favorite, because it is not readily found in bakeries or restaurants. A friend of mine, who is not a big fan of apricots, gave this cake her vote.
Chocolate lovers beware…..this chocolate cake will call to you for a second serving!!!
I made this cake for someone’s birthday, who loves chocolate and lots of frosting. I used the Dark Chocolate HERSHEY’S Cocoa for the cake, and made a double batch of the Dark Chocolate frosting. It was very rich, very dark, and no leftovers.
Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year. Everyone is rushing around to get shopping done, attend parties, put final touches on holiday decorations, and plan holiday meals.
The Ukrainians have many rich traditions associated with the celebration of Christmas. Many of them have been modernized to accommodate everyone’s busy lifestyle, but others are still kept original, and passed on from generation to generation.
