Apricot Halves in Clear Juice

Sun-ripened and picked at their peak, Wattie's apricots have captured natural goodness with that sweet, tangy flavour.

Method
Step 1
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a 22cm deep cake tin and line the base with baking paper. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Stir in the grated orange zest.
Step 2
2. Sift self-raising flour and fold into the creamed mixture with semolinana and lite sour cream.
Step 3
3. Turn into prepared tin. Arrange the Wattie's Apricot Halves evenly on the top.
Step 4
4. Bake for 1 1/4 hours or until cooked. To test, carefully insert a skewer or toothpick into the centre of the cake. It should come out clean when removed.
Step 5
5. To make Apricot Syrup: heat the reserved apricot juice, orange juice and sugar, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil and continue boiling until the syrup is reduced by half.
Step 6
6. Once the cake is cooked allow to stand for 5 minutes. Slowly pour the syrup over the cake while hot and in the tin. Cool in the tin before turning out. Dust with icing sugar before serving if wished.
