Plum and Apricot Cake

Serves: 6-12


4 1/2 ounces (140 g) dried apricots, chopped
1 cup water
4-5 plums, stoned and chopped
1/2 cup thick yogurt
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup unsweetened orange juice
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 cups wholemeal self-rising (raising) flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

Microwave Method:

1. Microwave the apricots in a dish with the water on HIGH for 5 minutes, uncovered. Mix with the plums and stir well to mash the apricots a little. Add the yogurt, honey, juice and egg and stir well.
2. Mix the dry ingredients, then lightly fold into the fruit mixture. Turn into a greased ring pan, elevate in the oven and microwave on HIGH for 8-10 minutes. Cool at least 5-10 minutes before turning out.
