Print this Recipe    Apricot Nut Bread

(makes 4 to 6 servings)

3/4 cup dried apricots
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup milk
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 Tbsp grated orange peel
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

Place the apricots on a chopping block. Sprinkle 1 T flour over
them. Dip a knife into the flour and chop the apricots finely.
Flour the knife often to keep the cut up fruit from sticking
together. Sift the remaining flour, baking powder, baking soda,
salt and sugar into a large bowl. Combine the milk, egg, orange
peel, and oil. Stir the flour mixture and the whole wheat flour.
Fold in the cut up apricots, any flour left on the cutting block
and the walnuts. Pour into a well greased, floured bakin unit.
Cover and place on a rack in the slow cooker, but prop the lid open
a fraction with a toothpick or a twist of foil to let excess steam
escape. Cook on High for 4 to 6 hours. Cool on a rack for 10
minutes. Serve warm or cold.

Now before you all ask what a baking unit is (I wondered as I sat
and typed this in), I looked it up in the front of the bread section.
She says that some manufacturers are making units for slow cookers,
but if you don't have one, a 2 pound coffee can works. Pyrex muffin
cups also work. Also 1, 1 1/2 and 2 quart molds work.

Do not lift the lid while baking this bread.
