Apricot Ginger Pecan Cake
Since I love to experiment and had dried apricots and candied ginger lying about, last night I made this lovely little cake.
3/4 c dried apricots, chopped, soaked and drained
1/2 c candied ginger, chopped
1 stick butter, melted
1 c oats + 2 tsp water, stirred together
Combine throughly to make sure everything is coated by the butter.
Then add: 1/2 c pecans
3 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp flour
1/2 c cornstarch
Mix together until just combined (do not overmix!)
Pour into buttered 7x2" pan and bake @325 F for about a half hour.
Let cool before taking out of pan, place on plate and then sprinkle w/powder sugar.
