    Heat the apricot jam with water until it becomes more liquid. Strain it and set it aside.
    Heat a pan filled with syrup. Dip the cooled baba cakes in the hot syrup on both sides, then place them on a cooling rack to let the excess syrup drain. Brush them with apricot sauce.
    If desired, cut the baba cakes in half and fill the center with whipped cream, adding more cream and fresh fruits on top. Enjoy!
