Wow, since you guys loved the first one so much, here's the second in the series! But I'm traveling tomorrow to London so the next will have to wait a few weeks.
I found this to be a brilliant recipe when I have people coming over and have very little time to bake. It's seasonal, we only get apricots in summer, but seasonal = in harmony with nature = good.
As I said in the previous post [link]
, healthy food doesn't have to be boring food. I firmly believe anyone can enjoy a decadent dessert a week without adverse effect – provided you use the most wholesome possible ingredients and you know there's no unidentified crap thrown in. Take butter for instance. Just use good fresh butter from a responsible farm and have the common sense to not put it in your food every day; it really beats fooling oneself with so-called substitutes (look at the ingredient list and tell me you want that in your mouth, plus it makes one feel it's "safer" to eat more, which is the real cause of problems), and it tastes a LOT better. I do use olive oil rather than butter in recipes where it makes sense, but for desserts? Nevah!
Anyway, I'm starting to ramble, but my point is: use real, honest ingredients without fear, and be moderate in your consumption. A good trick is never to bake if you don't have people coming over or people to visit, to make sure most of it gets eaten. Otherwise you might feel force to finish it yourself ^^
In any case this is by no means very decadent a dessert, and it's incredibly delicious.
