Heavenly Honey and Apricot Almond Cake

“This dense, honey sweetened cake is a real treat. Plate it with a wedge of ripe apricot drizzled with a bit of honey and then nestle a whole almond in the apricot pit hollow. Serve with a cup of chai for a delightful and unforgetable sensory experience. It's manna. Truly.”
