Apricot Honey Cake and I’m sorry….

10 Apr

Hello everyone,

I’m sorry for my tirade yesterday,  this thing with some of my family member’s hasn’t gotten any better. I think its getting worse… I really don’t know what to do about now. Maybe sometime there will be a solution to the problem. I’m feeling pretty low right now… I went to my hair stylist yesterday to get the back of my hair cut shorter. She’s can see how thin my hair has gotten over time. I have a bald spot in the back of my head, you can’t see it yet, it’s still covered by hair on top. This all related to the PCOS and the Sarcoidosis. I loved my hair growing up it’s the only thing about my looks that I liked. It used to be  very thick and was a light brown color. I colored it blonde after I got divorced, that was about 13 years ago??? Wow, so many thing’s have changed since then.  The marriage was bad and ended badly, I was only 19 at the time. I will have to get a wig before to long, I knew this day was coming, just not so soon.. Well enough of my crap for now…

Here’s a recipe I made up a while ago, I hope you all enjoy it…

Apricot Honey Cake:

1 cup honey

3/4 cups unsalted butter, softened (1-1/2 sticks) 6oz.

3 large eggs

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/3 cup sour cream


1 cup sifted powdered sugar

1 tblsp. unsalted butter, softened

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Combine the honey and butter and beat until smooth, add eggs one at a time. Scraping bowl as needed. On low-speed add the preserves, the sour cream, and the vanilla. Mix in the flour mixture, until smooth. Pour into prepared baking pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until cake tester comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes, then turn out onto serving plate.
