Chocolate and apricot cake. Recipe
It had been a long time since I made something with chocolate and the truth is that I already felt like it. It's funny how anything we do with chocolate, however simple it may be, is always so attractive. Although in this case, the chocolate and apricot cake is not only apparent, but it is also delicious and that refreshing, summery and colorful touch that the fruit gives it, makes it a perfect present, to take as a detail to a lunch, dinner or snack.
1 sheet of shortbread dough, 100 grams of chocolate, 120 grams of butter, 2 eggs, 2 egg yolks, 200 grams of sugar, 75 grams of flour, 6 apricots.
How to make chocolate apricot cake
We preheat the oven to 180º C.
We wash the apricots, peel them, cut them in half and remove the pit. We reserve them.
We butter a mold of the appropriate size for our breeze dough, place it on top, prick it with a fork and cover it with greaseproof paper. On top of the paper we put a good handful of chickpeas to make them weigh and prevent them from rising and deforming during cooking.
We put it in the oven for about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and remove the paper with the vegetables.
Melt the chocolate with the butter, in a double boiler or in the microwave.
In a bowl, beat the two eggs and the two yolks, together with the sugar. Add the chocolate and the sifted flour. We beat to mix well.
Pour the chocolate mixture over the baked dough. We distribute the apricot halves over the chocolate.
We cook in the oven at the same temperature for about 25 or 30 minutes.
Processing time | 40 minutes

Let the chocolate and apricot cake cool before serving.
About the best accompaniment for this cake I will leave it to everyone's taste, although for my taste it is best to do it in the company of someone who likes chocolate cakes, his face when hitting the first bite of this cake can be a whole poem.
If we see that the apricots are somewhat acidic, we can pour a little sugar on top and bake it for 15 minutes, before placing them on the chocolate to put everything back in the oven.
