Poor Mans Apricot Pudding

What you need:

185 gm  butter or margarine
3/4 cup  caster sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup self raising flour
1 cup plain flour

1 x large tin apricots

What to do:

Heat oven to 185 fan forced, 
Beat butter and caster sugar until light. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Fold in the flours..
Place half the mixture in a greased and lined tin, measuring approximately 18 cm x 28 cm (7" x 11") . Arrange the apricots over the top. Carefully spread remaining mixture over the top of the apricots. The mixture will not coat all the apricots. The idea is to have some of the fruit still showing.
Bake for about 35 - 45 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius. Stand for 10 minutes before serving.
Serve with a nice dollop of double cream, ice cream, or custard, eat hot or cold.

Notes:
I only had half a big tin of apricots that seemed to do, just enough for one layer. it would of been better with the 2 layers of fruit
I also found the batter a little to thick to spread so I  poured a little of the tin syrup into the batter and  mixed it through and that is Greek yoghurt on the plate, not cream or ice cream.
