Treat yourself to an indulgent saucy Apricot and Lemon Loaf Cake. Enjoy with a steaming cup of Earl Grey and enjoy the fruity flavors of spring!
Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease and line a loaf pan.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, heavy cream, lemon zest, rum, a pinch of salt and melted butter.
Add in the flour and baking powder and whisk it into the large bowl.
Pour into the loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
Remove the cake from the oven and let cool for several minutes. Turn the cake onto a cooling rack and let it cool further, about 10-15 minutes.
Warm the apricot jam in the microwave and then brush over the cake, let sit for 5 minutes to absorb.
To make the lemon glaze, whisk together lemon juice, lemon zest, and powdered sugar.
Brush this glaze over the cake and let it absorb before serving.
