Servings: 12 (Plus 12 cupcakes)
• 2 ounces butter or margarine
• 1/2 cup brown sugar

• 1 package moist yellow cake mix
• 1/2 cup water
• 3 eggs
Preheat oven to package instructions
Melt butter in ungreased 8” or 9” pan. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly in pan. Arrange 1 can of drained apricots on brown sugar, cut side up.
In a blender, purée the remaining can of apricots. Mix together cake mix with 1 can apricot purée, 1/2 cup water, and 3 eggs. Mix until smooth (may take vigorous beating by hand for 2-3 minutes).
