  • 3/4 cup dried apricots, divided
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons powdered sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8x8-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a small saucepan, simmer 1/2 cup of teh apricots in the water, covered, for 2 minutes. Cool, but do not drain. In a small bowl, diced the remaining apricots.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and baking soda. Stir in the diced apricots.
  4. In a blender, add the cooled apricot mixture and puree, about 1 minute. Add the egg, granulated sugar, oil, zest, and vanilla and mix until just blended, about 30 seconds.
