Raspberry Filled Apricot Cake
























Tips:
  • This is a "lightened up" cake that is the perfect ending to spring and summer meals.
  • Instead of a heavy buttercream frosting, frozen whipped topping is mixed with apricot nectar, skim milk, and sugar-free/fat-free pudding mix.
  • Spreadable fruit or jam makes a great fat-free filling for cakes.
  • Toasting coconut brings out the flavor and makes it a beautiful golden color for garnish. It also adds delicious crunch to the cake!

Ingredients

Cake:

  • 1 box (15.25 oz.) Pillsbury Moist Supreme Classic Yellow Cake Mix
  • 1 ⅓ cups apricot nectar
  • 2 eggs

Filling:
  • 1 cup raspberry spreadable fruit or jam

Frosting:
  • 1 package (1 oz.) sugar-free vanilla instant pudding mix
  • ½ cup skim or low fat milk
  • 2 Tablespoons apricot nectar
  • 1 tub (8 oz.) frozen light whipped topping, thawed
  • 3 Tablespoons coconut, toasted

Steps: 
  1. Heat oven to 350° F. Lightly grease and flour two 9 or 8-inch round cake pans.

  2. In large bowl, combine cake mix, 1 ⅓ cup apricot nectar, and eggs at low speed until moistened; beat 2 minutes at high speed.

  3. Pour into greased and floured pans.

  4. Bake 350° F for 25 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. (Bake 8-inch pans 30 to 40 min.) Cool 15 minutes; remove from pans.

  5. Cool completely.

  6. To assemble cake, slice each cake layer in half horizontally to make 4 layers.

  7. Place 1 cake layer cut side up on serving plate; spread with ⅓ cup spreadable fruit.

  8. Repeat 2nd & 3rd layers with fruit.

  9. Top with remaining cake layer.

  10. In small bowl, combine pudding mix, milk, and 2 Tablespoons apricot nectar; blend well.

  11. Add thawed whip topping. Beat at low speed for 2 minutes. Frost sides and top of cake.

  12. Sprinkle top with toasted coconut.

  13. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving. Store in refrigerator. 


Tip:
To toast coconut, spread on cookie sheet; bake at 350° F for 7 to 8 min. or until golden brown, stirring occasionally.
