Apricot Crunch Cake

Well I been in a sugar mood lately, and I finally got myself to do this Apricot crunch cake.. for no reason at all.. and I been dipping spoons into the dessert every 5 minutes.. Its super good.. yumm..

What's great about it is that its super easy, and it takes about 40 min and its ready to serve..

All you need is:

1 can of preserved Apricots (pears, apples, and peaches can work too) - there is 2 cans in the pictures but I only used one
1 box of yellow cake
1 stick of butter (100 g)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup crushed walnuts

Now the how to is super simple...

1. Open can of apricots and simply spill all the contents including the syrup into a 17" glass pot, slice them if needed.
2. sprinkle the whole box of yellow cake on top
3. slice butter into 16 pieces and distribute over the yellow cake layer
4. sprinkle cup of brown sugar
5. sprinkle cup of crushed walnuts (you could use pecans or hazelnuts - just be creative)

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.. and Voila..

you can either serve it hot with vanilla Ice cream, or eat it cold.. Its yummy either way :)

Should Barbie take Ken back?

Matel is running a big campaign asking people to vote online as to whether the blonde bombshell Barbie should take Ken back..
Well no matter what you think about the topic.. and despite thinking Barbie being a cold hearted ruthless modern woman to replace Ken her boyfriend since 1961 with Blaine the aussi in 2004 after 43 years of him being there beside her..

Well anyways, as I went through the History of the couple, I came across Dream date Barbie which was released in 1984.. And guess what.. I actually had that Barbie.. I played with it back in the 80s.. and when I saw the doll, all my memories came running back, and I felt like I was 6 again.. that was super.. really...
