  1. Preheat oven to 150 C / Gas 2. Grease a 23cm cake tin with butter, and dust with breadcrumbs; set aside.

  2. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the sliced apricots, and drizzle with honey. Cover, and cook gently until the apricots have softened, then allow to cool to room temperature.

  3. Meanwhile, beat the egg whites to soft peaks with an electric mixer. Slowly pour in 100g sugar while continuing to beat to stiff peaks; set aside.

  4. Beat the egg yolks on low speed for a few seconds until slightly thickened. Slowly pour in 200g sugar while continuing to beat until thickened and light-coloured. Beat in milk, then sift together flour with baking powder, and fold into yolks along with cooled apricot mixture, walnuts and egg whites until combined.

  5. Pour into prepared tin, and bake in the middle or bottom of the preheated oven until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Loosen the cake by running a knife around the edges of the pan. Invert cake onto a plate, then place another plate on the cake bottom, and flip right-side-up; cool completely before serving.
