I liked this recipe, the torte was moist and tasty. However I found the icing too sweet. I had a hard time cutting the cake in half, but that might be my technique - someone told me that a thread works best to cut it in half but that did not work for me. The cake cooked in 30 minutes for me, but my oven is weird (even with an oven thermometer) so I won't blame the recipe. It also shrank from the sides of the pan, and I was worried that it might be too dry - it wasn't.
I used saskatoon/raspberry jam instead of apricot, because I didn't think I would like apricot.
