1) Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Butter and flour a 23cm cake tin.

3) In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer beat the eggs and the sugar until the mixture becomes thick and pale yellow. Add the butter, and milk. Stir in the almond essence and apricots. Gently stir in the dry ingredients.
