This cake has its little story … Marie-Pierre is the sweetest & most caring person I have ever met. We both have the same passion for baking (and for ice cream… ) & never missed an opportunity to share recipes. Working for the same company, we were sitting close one to another for a few years, and it must have been mid summer when she brought this delicious cake to work, made with the best Apricots of the Valais Region in Switzerland. She kindly shared her recipe with me and since then, I bake it on a regular basis, with fresh apricots or with cherries, frozen berries … any juicy fruits I have ! Thank you Marie-Pierre for your kindness always and see you soon for a coffee … and ice cream !
