I love a good Apricot recipe whether it’s cookies, cake, bread or anything sweet. I decided to add Apricot Tea Cakes to our yearly Christmas Baking Extravaganza this year and I’m so glad I did. These delightful treats include diced apricots, walnuts, vanilla chips and a pretty little candied cherry on top! Plus, they’re iced with an easy powdered sugar icing for a little more sweetness. Yes, they are so, so good.

I purchased several of the 20-tin miniature Bundt pans at Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts this year to go along with several I already had. I thought the idea of Tea Cakes would be a tasty way to enjoy Christmas goodies. This way I could bake them in bunches and bag them up without having to store in my already overloaded freezers. It worked out well and we continue to get notes, cards, emails, text messages and personal thank yous from all those we’ve delivered the goodies to.

If you’re interested in an elegant and beautiful holiday dessert, and you enjoy apricots, this is the dessert for you. It bakes up beautifully and every bite will cure those sweet tooth cravings pronto! Enjoy.
