I made this for a dinner party for 8 last night and it was a BIG hit! Everyone raved about it and demanded the recipe. It is so easy and yet elegant. Not real sweet but rich, and the apricot jam/cognac topping was divine! I couldn't find papers for the larger muffin tin I wanted to use, so I ended up cutting parchment paper to fit two of them, which worked fine, and used a silicone pan with six larger shallow cups. That didn't work well--the cakes didn't come out of the silicone pan well. Just use a regular muffin tin, and use the papers. Everyone will think you're a gourmet cook.
