THB #2 : Apricot Pistachio Lemon Coffee Cake

Without me realising , its time for our THB event again . I am joining The Home Bakers, a new blog event organise by Joyce from Kitchen Flavours. We are baking recipes taken from COFFEE CAKES by Lou Seibert Pappas. This round , Chris of Yummy Bakes has chosen the recipe to bake. Good idea for me to use up the dried apricot that has been sitting in my fridge for months since I miss the Free a& Easy Bake Along #15 . I have nearly forgotten about the dried apricot , Heehee... what a waste if I dun get to use it yeah ...
I didn't half the recipe this time, as I was curious to know how big it will turn out to be. Tada.... its just nice to fit my whole bundt pan. I did reduce the sugar from 1 3/4 cup to 3/4 cup of sugar , and add 1 tbsp of lemon juice to it. This cake turn out to be just the right mouthfeel of sweetness and a faint hint of lemon . Lovely cake to enjoy with a cup of fresh brew coffee , errrr.......   maybe not coffee for me , LOL. I'll just enjoy this with a cup of hot steaming Viet Lotus tea , yummy , while the others sipping away cups of fresh brew hot black coffee..
Guess my buddies all waiting for my post to be up .LOL...... known to be the last one to post , cos I am always late ... Overall, I kind of love this cake in terms of taste and texture . Will definitely bake this again . For the full recipe of this cake please hop over to Chris's blog Yummy Bakes.
