I made a half recipe (half is listed below). For some reason, my flour was super absorbent, so I needed to add a whole lot more milk (used almond milk). Also, didn’t have crème fraiche, so I used almond milk instead. It seemed like the topping didn’t really do much, but the cake was still pretty good. The apricots were a bit tart, so there was a nice contrast in this really moist cake

Makes about: one 9×5 loaf pan
Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 40-50 minutes

Ingredients
250g apricots (about 4 small apricots), washed and quartered
1/2 + 3/8c flour
½ tsp baking powder
dash salt
¼ tsp baking soda
5 tbsp butter
½ tsp milk + extra if needed (I used 6 tbsp)
¼ cup sugar
½ egg

topping: 1 tbsp heavy cream
1 tbsp sugar
1 egg

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Mix flour and butter.
