Next, take a large bowl and place the softened butter in it. Add the sugar and beat the mixture with a mixer at medium speed until it becomes creamy.

TIPS: If your butter is too hard, a few seconds in the microwave can soften it up and make it easier to whip.

TIPS: Instead of using butter, you can opt for good quality margarine. It works just as well! But keep in mind that margarine contains salt. So, you might want to reduce the amount of salt in the recipe. Just a little heads up!

Once cooled, spread a layer of apricot jam on top of the cake.

TIPS: To make spreading jam over the dough the apple slices, use a silicone pastry brush. It’s the perfect tool for the job and will give you a smooth and even application.

TIPS: For a more even spread of jam, try warming it slightly over a pan of simmering water or in the microwave. This will make it easier to work with and ensure a consistent distribution.
