I followed the recipe exactly and thought it turned out great! Has a light sweetness with the apricots and honey glaze. I'll definitely be making this one again! Easy to fix and turned out great in my machine.

Outstanding! I use different dried fruits and wallnuts also. Be ready for a HUGE loaf. I use 2lb setting.

I used half whole wheat and half white flour, and used only honey as the sweetener. This was made by hand and baked at 360 for 45 minutes. Great taste! The family wants me to make it again!

I definitely like this bread a lot. It has a nice flavor and I love the apricots spotted throughout. I used the dough cycle on my bread machine and baked in the oven for 45 min at 375. I let the dough rise in the fridge bc I had made the dough late the night before, so 45 min wasn't quite enough--I think it would have been if I had let it rise at room temp. I love that the top of the bread turns out dark and rustic looking. Very pretty bread! I didn't add the honey on top bc I want to use this as a sandwich bread, but I'm sure it would be wonderful with it. I'll make again. Thanks for the recipe!

Absolutely delicious! As it's written, the loaf was a little too big for my breadmaker, even set to a 2 lb loaf. It poofed up and smooshed against the top, so it was still a little gooey on the top. Next time I will cut the recipe down to 10 servings and it should be fine. The bread itself is wonderful. I added a little ground ginger in addition to the cinnamon and doubled the fruit using raisins and cranberries instead of apricots. I will definitely make this again, and am looking forward to different fruit combinations.

I substituted apple juice instead of orange juice and didn't put the honey on the top because I, too, want to use the loaf for sandwiches. Pretty good, although the apricots give the bread a tartness I'm still trying to decide if I like or not. All in all, not a bad recipe. Will make again... but maybe with raisins & nuts instead of the apricots.

I LOVE this recipe!!!! I have a slice for breakfast with the drizzle of honey and it's my favorite recipe to date.

Yummy. Made exactly as written, except I did not add the honey on top. I selected the 2# loaf, light crust, "quick fruit & nut" bread setting and it took 2 hrs and 40 minutes to mix, rise, and bake. The apricots give it such a pleasant tartness. I might try adding just a little more cinnamon next time.
