  • 1/2 c Almonds; sliced
  • 1 c Coconut; flaked, toasted
  • 1/3 c Brown sugar; packed
  • 3 ts Butter, softened
  • 1 3/4 c Flour
  • 1 ts Baking soda

  • 1/2 c Apricot preserves
  • 1/4 c Sour cream

Grease a 10" microwave-safe fluted tube dish. Sprinkle almonds over sides.
Combine coconut, 1/3 cup brown sugar and 3 tbsp butter. Press into bottom
of dish. Set aside. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt. Beat 1/2 cup
butter. Add 3/4 cup brown sugar and beat until fluffy. Add eggs, preserves
and sour cream. Beat well. Add flour mixture and Amaretto, alternately, to
beaten mixture, beating well after each addition. Fold in apricots.
Transfer batter to prepared dish. Micro cook, uncovered, on 50 % power

test for doneness, scratch the slightly wet surface with a wooden
toothpick. The cake should be cooked underneath. If not done, cook on 100 %

minutes. Invert and cool on a platter.
