This sounds great.  I bet it would be good using almond extract.  The flavors of almond and apricot go so well together. And a little almond extract goes a long way.

By the way Nancy did you see the "cookie" on the Home page?  The Choco-Oat-Caramel bar cookie?  I have made these for years (minus the chocolate) and they are great.  I posted a review with you in mind.  These would also be great with the addition of coconut and pecans. It is a bar cookie you can play with.

Nikki - last night at church the woman whose family hosts any missionaries passing through, said she is expecting a family to arrive on Jan. 6 ... would I please make a load of cookies.
I know the cookies are used for dessert the first meal, then any-time treats, and the remainder is given to them as they move on.

I'm going to make the usual bunch of cookies AND an apricot coffee cake for the next day breakfast.  That will be a real treat for their breakfast.   I'll bake it in a "paper/cardboard"  pan so the hostess doesn't have to worry about returning something.

I can't wait to try the almond flavoring .... that sounds SOOOOOOOO good!!

Thanks Nanci

Hi Nanci - I'm talking (well, trying to talk) about those Hefty lightweight, stiff cardboard (pressed paper) baking pans.  WalMart carries an assortment of sizes and shapes.  They are great to use when you are cooking food to take somewhere.
At WalMart they are displayed with the light weight  aluminium (sp?) cake pans. 

Did I make any sense?  Laughing

Nancy G.  Thank you for this post.  I love making coffee cakes to share with neighbors and friends.  This sounds like something I'd really enjoy.

Nancy, are you using a round 8" pan or a square one??  How about using a plain old foil pan that you can get at most grocery stores?  This really sounds like a great recipe.  I need to bring goodies for my Children's Home Society auxillary meeting in January, and this sounds like it would really ring a bell with the ladies.  Thanks for sharing!!

I use a regular 8" metal round pan .... this seems to be such a flexible old recipe that I think any pan would work.

One time I made it with canned peaches .... it was good, but IMHO it wasn't as good as apricots.  I made it one time with the pie filling cherries - bright red color, sticky thick syrup - I ate it (lol lol lol) but it sure wasn't as good as apricots.
I wish others would try the recipe with different fruits and give their opinions.
