What a wonderful cake! It combines two of my favourite flavours - apricot and chocolate! I baked it in a 10" springform pan and it came out great. I just wanted to mention - if this is the same recipe from the Australian Woman's Weekly Home Library Cakes and Slices Cookbook, which I suspect it is, you didn't say that the recipe calls for 1-1/2 cups SELF-RAISING flour! This may affect the outcome for other who wish to try the recipe.

i had a bit of trouble with this one- my round cake pan was not big enough for the batter, it was overflowing all over my oven within the first 15 minutes of baking. i put a baking pan underneath it and when it was done it did taste good. i used white chocolate chips
