I thought it must be very interesting flavour- cinnamon & apricots plus brown sugar but the cake was very dry, not very tasty, didn't look presentable at all- much darker than on a picture with baking 1.40 min :/?! I won't cook it again

Because I thought that the amount of cinnamon in the recipe might overpower the apricot flavour, I used half the amount. My cake turned out darker than the picture (I used soft brown sugar as stated). The cake-tin size was not given, so I guessed and used a six inch tin, but next time I will use a larger, shallower tin. Overall, a nice cake and a good way to use up dried apricots.
