  • Preheat the oven to 180°C. Lightly grease a springform pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.

  • Cut 3-4 apricots into halves and remove the core. If they’re not fully ripe, cut into quarters or thinner slices.

  • In a mixing bowl whisk together 2 cups flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, salt, and ⅔ cups of sugar.

  • To a measuring jar add ¾ cup of oat milk, 3 tablespoons of coconut yogurt, ½ cup oil, juice and zest from half a lemon and a touch of vanilla extract. Mix to combine.

  • Pour the wet mixture into the flour mixture and stir using a spatula just until combined. Fold in 4 tablespoons of shredded coconut as desired.

  • Transfer the batter to the prepared springform pan. Place the sliced apricots on top, then sprinkle with coconut flakes and brown sugar.

  • Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the center of the cake comes out almost clean with just a few crumbs attached.

  • Let cool before serving. Enjoy!
