Expert Tips

  • You can use 1 can (16 ounces) apricot halves in juice, well drained and sliced, for the fresh apricots.
  • Bake a foolproof Betty Crocker® angel food cake mix to use in this recipe. Cut half of a baked cake into 1-inch cubes for this recipe.
  • Purchased or homemade angel food cakes work well in this recipe. A 7-inch loaf yields about 6 cups cake cubes; a 7 1/2-inch ring yields about 11 cups.
