Apricot jam cake with marshmallow frosting Jump to Recipe

It is from a little cake book I bought in London in 1994 while browsing in Notting hill after my admission interview for London Business School.

Every time I bake a cake from this book it reminds me of the feeling of that adventure.

I must have made at least 10 of them, but I always interchange some of the ingredients to suit our taste.

They have all been delightfully good.

This one is no exception:

    That frosting looks fantastic, I bet it perks up the cake and makes it extra special

    Apricot jam is one of my very favourite jams (and this from a real jam-lover) so the cake looks very much one I’d love.

    What a fun idea! It looks delicious. Apricots remind me of my grandparents so I always love cooking with them!
