Apricot Walnut Bread

My Husband bought a huge package of dried non sulfured apricots and I was sick of seeing them in the fridge mocking me.  I don't eat dried fruit myself, so I thought I would try to make some bread out of some of the apricots.  I looked around and found a nice recipe on The Taste Of Home website.

I followed the recipe exactly, except I lowered the temperature and cooked it for about an hour and a half.


1 cup snipped dried apricots
2 cups warm water
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 egg
3/4 cup orange juice
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chopped nuts (I used Walnuts)


Soak apricots in warm water for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, cream the sugar, butter and egg. Stir in orange juice.

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir into creamed mixture just until combined.

Drain apricots well; add to batter with nuts. Pour into a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan.

Bake at 350° for 55 minutes or until bread tests done.

Cool 10 minutes in pan before removing to a wire rack. Yield: 1 loaf.
