Always love quick bread for breakfast or in between snack. This week tried my hand baking this Fantastic Apricot Bread.
This bread can be baked with yeast but am not in the mood to knead or spend time waiting for it to rise. So chosen this fruit laden quick bread.
Before you start, chopped dry apricot into small pieces but fairly visible. Soak them in water for good 30 minutes. Squeeze out the water. keep aside.
This Fantastic Apricot Bread was really sweet so it doesn't need any glaze at all. Have seen a few recipes with less sugar but uses glaze after it has been baked. Which one do you prefer, less sugar with glaze or without?
This bread received high marks from my family, we are expecting some guest for couple of days, have planned to bake it again.
