Apricot Bread with Nuts

Apricots add a welcome sweetness to this bread recipe. This bread recipe is fairly quick - but read ahead to make sure you leave time to soak the apricots.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup dried apricots
  • 1/3 cup warm water
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted shortening
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Instructions
  1. Wash apricots in cold water. Cut in small pieces & soak in warm water 2-3 hours.
     
  2. Beat eggs until light. Gradually add sugar, beating thoroughly.
     
  3. Drain apricots, saving liquid. Measure liquid and add enough milk to make 1 cup. Add melted shortening to milk, then add apricots. Add milk/apricot mixture to eggs; then add flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in nuts.
     
  4. Pour into 3 loaf pans well-greased and lined with waxed paper. Let stand for 10 minutes.
     
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour 15 minutes. Remove from pan, let cool on rack. 
Notes

Sometimes this turns out a bit dry, but is still wonderful with butter or cream cheese. If you notice that it's dry before you put it in the pans, add more milk to the batter.
