Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place the flour, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, cream together the sugar, egg, and butter until smooth. Mix the powdered milk, water, and vanilla into the batter, stirring until well blended. Pour the batter into the flour and beat until smooth. Spread the batter into a greased 8 inch square pan, and sprinkle the diced apricots evenly over the top. Dust with cinnamon and sugar. Bake in the preheated oven approximately 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

  • The actual cake portion of this recipe is great. I didn't have powdered milk and used 1/4 cup whole milk instead, it worked great. The only thing I didn't like were the apricots themselves...I tossed them quickly with sugar and cinnamon and then put them on top of the coffee cake and baked it. The apricots ended up with kind of an unpleasant stewed texture that I am not fond of. I don't know if that means I don't like apricots, or if I somehow made the recipe incorrectly. That said, I'm keeping this recipe handy because the coffee cake recipe is a great one, and can be changed depending on what fruit you have on hand. Thanks for sharing!!!
