Amazing Apricot Date Bread Recipe @

My family always look forward to having dessert for tea-time, either  cake, bread or cookies.   For me, I love to bake a quick bread as it was quick, easy and simple steps.

For long time, I have not stepped into supermarket to purchase my baking products. As am looking for what to bake, found a tub of dried apricot and date so these are going to be my baking adventure this week.

Amazing Apricot Date Bread is loaded with apricot and date, mildly sweetened with coconut sugar,  it contains warm spices of ground ginger and cinnamon.

Easily turns this Amazing Apricot Date Bread into a vegan recipe by replacing butter with vegan butter and an egg with yogurt. So often quick bread  comes out dry but not this bread. It is deliciously moist despite using 2 tablespoon of butter and mouth watering good.

Yum, this looks so good. I've never made a quickbread with apricots and dates. I definitely love a moist quickbread, though, so I'd love to try this one. #thursdayfavoritethings

We always keep a bucket of chopped dates around because my husband is unashamedly addicted. So I would like to give this a try once I get ahold of some apricots.

Thanks for sharing your recipe. Congratulations foe being featured on this past week’s Homestead Blog Hop!

I love using dates in breads too Nora! I discovered how much I like them a few years ago when I was avoiding table sugar, and boy, oh boy, was I as happy as a lark! YUMMY! Thank you for sharing this recipe.
