Now you might not think that chocolate and apricot would go together in a cake but this was just delicious and easy.


  • 3 cups Self Raising Flour
  • 2 cups Raw Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
  • 1 x 375 gram packet chocolate melts
  • pinch Salt
  • bottled apricots
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Mix dry ingredients, add chocolate melts.

I opened a bottled of home preserved ones so it probably equaled approximately 750 ml.

Add apricots and juice and olive oil. Mix this together and then add enough of the 2 cups of water to make a nice moist mixture.

Spoon into greased and lined tin and bake for about 30 mins in a moderate oven.

This cake was delicious and moist and didn’t need icing, but you could ice it with chocolate icing.
