Charleston Daily Mail, Charleston, West Virginia July 21, 1920, page 9

  • 1 apricots
  • 1-2 cup sugar
  • 1-2 cup water
  • 1 blanched almonds
  • 1-2 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1 squares stale sponge cake

Cut the cake in slices about an inch thick. Make squares. Make a syrup of the sugar and water. Pare and cut the fruit in halves. Cook the apricots in the syrup until tender, while hot put two halves of the fruit on each square of cake, put an almond in the cavity of each and pour the syrup over the whole. Whip cream and sweeten. Add a spoonful of the whipped cream just before serving.
