  • Heat oven to 325°F.
  • Combine flour and baking powder. Beat cream cheese and butter in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add granulated sugar; beat until light and fluffy. Add dry pudding mix and water; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing well after each addition. Gradually add flour mixture, beating on low speed after each addition until well blended.
  • Pour 2/3 of the batter into greased and floured 12-cup fluted tube pan or 10-inch tube pan. Use back of spoon to make "trench" in centre of batter; spoon jam into trench. Cover with remaining batter. Gently spread batter to completely cover jam, being careful not to allow jam to touch sides of pan.
  • Bake 1 hour 15 min. to 1 hour 25 min. or until toothpick inserted near centre of cake comes out clean. Cool cake in pan 15 min. Loosen cake from sides of pan with knife. Invert onto wire rack; gently remove pan. Cool cake completely. Sprinkle with icing sugar just before serving.

Special Extra

Serve topped with thawed Cool Whip Whipped Topping and fresh apricot slices.


Substitute 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour for the 2 cups cake flour. NOTE: Cake flour, made from soft wheat, produces a more tender delicate cake. It contains less gluten and produces a finer texture than all-purpose flour.
