I usually make this moist cake in the days between Christmas and New Year's so I can use up leftover pantry ingredients from Christmas baking. You could also add nuts or other dried fruit.
I've made this cake on a number of occasions and have found that most of my friends prefer it without the coconut, so that is what I do and it goes down a treat. - 04 Sep 2012
The flavor of the cake was good, I thought the apricots were a loss as you couldn't really taste them. I have a sweet tooth but this cake was way to much. If I were to make this again I would try it without any icing. - 12 Mar 2013
This was delicious, a very moist and tasty sponge. No one likes coconut in our house so I left it out and didn't put all the milk in, just enough for a dropping consistency. Brilliant, simple cake. - 05 Feb 2017
