Apricot Coffee Cake with Solo Apricot Filling

Recommended Posts

I developed this recipe for a friend who wound up with many cans of Solo brand apricot filling and was wondering what to make with them. I adapted this recipe from Rose Levy Beranbaum's Sour Cream Coffee Cake, found on page 90 of the Cake Bible. The apricot filling works it way down through the cake and winds up near the bottom of the pan, making an attractive top later when the cake is inverted. Please use some sort of ring pan that holds at least 9 cups. You may substitute butter for the toasted almond oil, but remember that the oil adds flavor. I specifically developed this recipe with the home cook in mind, regular salted butter, and AP flour work well here. To reduce the sodium, use unsalted butter.  

 

Ingredients

113 grams (1 stick) salted butter

26 grams toasted almond oil
200 grams sugar
6 grams vanilla extract
4 egg yolks
160 grams regular sour cream (do not use low fat or fat free)
50 grams almond meal
175 grams all-purpose flour
2 1/2 grams baking powder
2 1/2 grams baking soda
12 ounces (1 can) Solo Apricot Filling

 

12 Servings

Preheat the oven to 350°

Spray a 9+ cup tube or Bundt pan with non-stick spray or grease with an oil & soy lecithin blend.

 

Lightly toast the almond meal in a frying pan on the stove top until it has a light beige color and has a mild fragrance. Allow to cool.

 

Cream together the butter, oil, and sugar. Add the vanilla and egg yolks, mix until the mixture is even and creamy. Add the sour cream and mix well. Add the cooled almond flour and mix well.

 

Sift together the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the liquid mixture and mix until it everything is evenly incorporated. Do not overmix the batter.

 

Place 2/3 of the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Place the apricot filling in an even layer on top, keeping a small space between the filling and the pan's edges. Place the remaining batter on top and smooth to create a relatively even surface.

 

Bake for approximately 50 minutes at 350° or until the top is dark brown and springs back to a light touch.

 

Allow to cool for 15 minutes. Invert the pan onto a serving plate. Cool and serve. Be cautious about serving this hot, as the apricot filling can cause serious burns. When fully cooled, cover or wrap in plastic wrap to store. Will keep for several days in a cool, dry place.

      Not very much like a regular cheesecake in texture - this one is more custardy and creamy.
      It's the easiest cheesecake I ever made.
       
      Amount for a 6" wide cake pan.
      For an 8" pan, double the ingredients.
       
      300g cream cheese 110g sugar 2 large eggs 150g full fat cream (I think it could also work with sour cream or mascarpone if you'd like a tart cheesecake) 2 tsp vanilla extract 1/4 tsp salt some grated nutmeg apx 1/3 tsp fine orange zest 30g flour  
       
      Most recipes suggest that you line the cake with a parchment paper, so that it covers the sides as well and ends above the pan, this allowes for easy removal of the cake. I opted to use a spring-form pan, brushed with butter, but this requires that your pan is stick and leak proof! Heat oven to 220C, no water bath needed. In a wide bowl, beat sugar and cream cheese. Add eggs and mix well. Mix in the cream, vanilla, salt, nutmeg and orange zest. Sift in the flower while gently folding, until evenly distributed. Pour into the pan. Bake for 35-45 minutes, the cake needs to rise and become very dark (some say black, but I find it to be too much). Avoid over baking, so that the center stays custardy. If you'd like, you can under bake so that it turns out creamy. Remove from the oven and let chill completely before removing from the pan.. Refrigerate to cool. It's best serve slightly below room temperature, so l suggest you let it warm up if refrigerated overnight. Serve with brandy!

      I live in a garlic deprived household because one of my housemates is deathly allergic to all garlic and onions. Sometimes I just want some garlic to munch on and raw garlic is just too much. So I set out to make a garlic snack and this is what I came up with.
      It is sweet with a little bit of sour, soft without being mushy and very, very garlicky. I can see the remaining syrup as a dip for potstickers or a great inclusion in a stir fry sauce.
       
      Candied Garlic

      2 heads of garlic, peeled
      1 cup water
      1/2 cup sugar
      2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
      1 tablespoon Chinese black rice vinegar
      15 G ginger, sliced thinly
      1 star anise
       
      Peel the garlic and place in the freezer overnight. Remove the next day and thaw completely.
      Combine the ingredients for the syrup in a small saucepan and bring to a boil stirring until the sugar dissolves. Reduce the Heat and simmer very slowly for 30 minutes. Add the thawed garlic and continue to simmer for 15 minutes. Let the garlic cool in the syrup and it is ready to eat.
      Note: I suppose that this could be made with regular rice vinegar but the black vinegar gives it in rich, smoky flavor. I suppose that if I just had the rice vinegar that I would add a drop of smoke flavoring.
      This is the vinegar that I used.

      Makes 12 muffins that can be served either savory or sweet.
       
      See also cornmeal biscuits recipe.
       
      175g cornmeal
      20g butter
      135g AP flour
      2.5 tsp baking powder
      1/4 tsp baking soda
      2 tsp salt
      200ml sour cream
      35g sugar
      1 large egg
      90ml whole fat milk
      apx 250g corn kernels - fresh is best, I sometimes used kernels from grilled corn. Frozen and even canned corn also works great.
      Optional addition:
      - Up to 1/2 tsp black pepper (I never skip the pepper)
      - Chopped chilies of any kind
      - Chopped scallions
      - Chopped cheddar cheese
      - Chopped feta (reduce salt from the muffins)
      - I guess chopped bacon will be really good
       
      - Brush a muffin tin tray with butter, or if you have one, use a silicon muffin tray.
      - Preheat an oven to 220dC.
      - Mix flours, baking powder, soda, salt.
      - Melt the butter, I suggest doing so in a large bowl or pot to which the remaining ingredients can be later added.
      - Mix in the sour cream, egg, sugar, milk, corn kernels and any other optional addition.
      - Mix dry ingredients into wet ones just until uniform. Avoid over mixing.
      - Divide batter among 12 muffin cups.
      - Bake for 15 minutes until set and golden.
      - Let cool for at least 5 minutes and release from tray.
      - For serving: bake again, preferably with convection fan, until deep gold and crisp. Apx 5-10 minutes.
      - Can be served savory with sour cream, cheese or butter; or sweet with butter or sour cream and honey.
      - Leftovers / planned-overs can be frozen, preferably after the first bake.

      Makes 9 - Can be doubled.
      Can be made a short time ahead and reheated and crisped for serving. Can also be frozen.
       
      For variation, replace the spices and chilies with 1 tbsp chopped rosemary, and the cheddar with kashkaval / provolone / etc.
       
      See also cornmeal muffins recipe.
       
       
      - 200ml sour cream, apx 20% fat
      - 60g good Cheddar cheese, grated
      - 2 jalapenos (or other chilies), deseeded and chopped. You can also char them first like when making salsa
      - 1 small spring onion, sliced finely
      ~~
      - 50g cornmeal
      - 140g white flour, pastry flour if available
      - 1 tsp toasted coriander seeds, ground
      - 1/2 tsp toasted cumin, ground
      - Pepper
      - Optional: large pinch MSG
      - 2 tsp sugar
      - 1 tsp salt
      - 3 tsp baking powder
      - 1/4 tsp baking soda
       
       
       
      - Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.
      - Mix remaining ingredients in a second bowl.
      - Dust your working surface.
      - Heat oven to 230 degrees C.
      - Fold wet mixture into dry one into the dry one, pressing and folding bottom up just until it forms a few crumbly dough chunks with some dry flour at the bottom.
      - Remove the mixture onto the dusted working surface.
      - Dust from above.
      - Press together to form a rough rectangle shape.
      - Fold the dough in half on top of itself.
      - Dust and press to flatten into a rough square shape, apx 3 cm (a bit more than an inch) tall.
      - Cut into 9 pieces (3 by 3 grid). Use a bench scraper or a large knife.
      - Place spaced on a baking try with parchment paper.
      - Bake for 13-16 minutes until lightly browned and baked through.
      - Remove from the try and cool on a baking try. 
      - You can serve it immediately, but I much prefer to let it chill for 10 minutes and then bake 5 minutes more until brown and crisp.

      This cake is very good served warm with ice cream, at room temp, or cold where it becomes fudgey.
      You can top it with a ganache or whatever you fancy.
