"A great loaf to warm you up on a cold, rainy day. It's bursting with apricot and orange flavor and sure to put a pleasant smell in the air when it's baked." — Linda

sultana raisins, chopped
dried apricots, chopped
A Enjoyed this bread very much. It had great flavor. I made it exactly as the recipe called for. The only thing I'll do differently next time is add more apricots. And thats only because I prefer more fruit in my fruit breads.
It needs salt! And Baking powder or soda or whatever one helps things rise. It was flat and hard. I can see how it could be yummy, with the addition of a few things.
I was not overly thrilled with this loaf. My husband wasn't either. It was a bit dry and seems to either be missing something or the existing ingredients don't meld together just right. Unless you enjoy a very lightly sweetened fruit bread you might want to try it. Otherwise I'm sure there are better choices. My kids would not even touch this.
I made this recipe to give it a face for the AllRecipes Allstars challenge. Very easy to make. I took it to work and everyone really liked it. A couple of people said that it seemed a little flat. May have to tweak a little next time.
Good tasting bread, but I had to bake it for 1 hour before it was done. I find the recipe too sweet though, next time I will use half the sugar. Instead of 1/2 cup raisins, I used 1/4 cup raisins and 1/4 cup tropical mix dried fruit.
JUST MADE THIS LOAF,
YUMMY!! NEXT TIME I MAKE IT WILL CHOP THE APRICOTS SMALLER
One daughter doesn't like raisins and the other doesn't like dried apricots but they both liked this. I didn't chop the raisins but otherwise stuck to the recipe exactly. One word of warning I sliced this whilst still warm and it crumbled but once cold it was fine. Thanks.
