The Recipe for a Ritchie Family Easter: Aunt Margaret's Apricot Cake March 29 2013


Easter is one of our favorite times of year. Finally, it’s spring. Flowers are starting to bloom, charges against Punxsutawney Phil have been dropped, and we have a whole weekend ahead with family and friends.

Here’s a famous recipe from Heath’s Aunt Margaret. Her apricot cake almost always came right after Easter brunch … and after a lot of cheese straws.

Happy Easter!
