Cooking Preparation of the Recipe:

2 1/2 c Cake flour 1/3 c Unsweetened cocoa
1 ts Baking soda 1/2 ts Salt
1 c Butter 2 c Sugar
3 Eggs 1 ts Vanilla
1 1/3 c Water

1 10/12 oz jar apricot preserv

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9" round cake pans.
To prepare the cake, in a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking
soda and salt. In a large bowl, with electric mixer on medium, beat butter
and sugar until light and fluffy, about 10 minutes. Add eggs, one at a

alternately beat in flour mixture and water. Pour batter into pans. Bake

Cool in pans for 10 minutes. Remove from pans: cool on rack.

Using a sharp knife, split each layer in half horizontally. Spread 3
layers with the preserves.

butter cream over each layer with apricot preserves. Stack layers, ending
with the plain layer.

To prepare the glaze, in a small saucepan, mix sugar, cocoa, heavy
cream and water. Cook over low heat, stirring, until smooth. Bring to a
boil: Boil for 1 minute. Cool slightly.

Place cake on rack over wax paper. Pour glaze over the cake, spread-
ing to evenly coat. Chill 30 minutes or until set. Garnish with whipped
cream piped around the top edge and spot the chopped pistashios around the
