Just made this cake, using half almonds and half coconut. Only had 1 orange to zest, and the mix seemed a little stiff so added a splash of milk. It's absolutely delicious and I will definitely be making it again.

Lovely cake but disappointed that the flavour from the coconut didn't come through. Next time I would just use ground almonds.

This cake is delicious and when apricots are plentiful I make a few and put them in the freezer. I also used half coconut and half almonds. Any body who has had a slice of it come back for more.
