2.rub the butter into the flour until it resembles fine bread crumbs. Stir in sugar, eggs and milk to for a soft dough.

3.Roll out the dough on a floured surface to form a 35cm/14 inch square. Mine was a bit wonky so dont worry if you dont get an exact square
4.Brush melted butter over the surface of the dough. Mix it together the chopped apricots and chocolate chips . spread them over the dough to within 2.5 cm/1inch of the top and bottom.
5.Roll it up tightly like a swiss roll and cut it into slices of 1inch. Layer the rings in a slight tilt in the pan to form a ring shape.

6. Drizzle the ring with the melted chocloate and it should look something like this if not better
