    1. Preheat oven to 170 C / Gas 3 and grease a baking tray with butter.
    2. In a large bowl, beat egg whites until very stiff; gradually add the sugar. Cover egg whites and set aside in the fridge.
    3. In a second bowl, beat butter, icing sugar and vanilla extract until light and fluffy. Add one egg yolk at a time, stirring well after each addition. Take stiff egg whites out of the fridge and carefully fold into the egg yolk mixture.
    4. Sift flour and baking powder on top; fold in gently. Spoon cake batter onto the baking tray and smooth down with a spatula. Top with apricots (cut side up) and blueberries and bake for 45 minutes until cake is golden brown.
    5. Cool the cake; dust with icing sugar and slice into squares or slices to serve.
