This is one of my most favourite cakes and it is so easy to make, I hope you like it.
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup shortening (I use olive oil)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup milk soured with a bit of vinegar
- apricot halves
Sour the milk with vinegar and let sit. Mix together the flour, salt, brown sugar and shortening into crumbs. Save 1 cup of crumbs for top.
Add cinnamon to rest of the crumbs and mix. Add vanilla, soda and sour milk. Mix.
Place into greased and lined tin and place apricot halves on top of cake mixture. Place crumb over apricots and bake in moderate oven for 25 – 30 minutes.
I double this mixture and it makes a nice large cake.
You can really put any fruit on top or if you wanted you could mix it together with the cake mixture, you can also make the cake and use no fruit. I have used stewed apples and plums.

This sounds so good, my mom and grandma make something similar in the summer with fresh apricots or Italian plums. I love crumb cakes like this! Looks delicious!!!
Italian plums sound like a nice alternative, thanks for stopping by Maria and thank you for your comment. Blessings
