Fantastic Apricot Bread Recipe @

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.

I've never heard of this before, but it sounds wonderful. do you think it would work with fresh apricots too, or would they have too much moisture?

Anyway, thank you for sharing this recipe over at The Really Crafty Link Party this week. Pinned!

This is lovely! I know I will love it with a cup of tea! I don't like sugary desserts, so this is perfect for me.

That looks delicious! While I do enjoy a sweet bread with glaze.. I rarely take the time to bother making one. I like quick and easy recipes and since the sweet breads can last for a few days in our house those without a glaze store and reheat better. Pinned.
