Notes

This was a recipe my nan used to make. So simple to make and delicious eating. Serve by itself or with custard or ice cream

  • My mum used to make this for us but with tin black cherries (1-2 tins substituting the apricot quantity).
    This was a recipe from a super super old Women’s Weekly book. She always made double because everyone wanted seconds. I’ve been trying to find this for years as she lost the book!!

  • I think this would taste amazing – makes me remember an apricot slice I used to get at the tuckshop at school many many years ago – I think I might indulge myself for mothers day and make this!
