    Annacia's Note:

    Call it a cake or a quick bread, either way it's different and delicious. I adapted another of my recipes (Honey Spice Cake) to come up with this flavorful loaf. You will need to make Zany Zesty North Africa/Middle East Spice Mix #428327 (I skipped the sugar and salt in it) for the spice used in this, it doesn't take more than 5 mins and that included gathering the ingredients onto the counter and it is what makes this recipe what it is. Get ready to enjoy the wonderful baking aroma!

    1. 1
      Place apricots in a small pan with just enough water to cover. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for a couple of minutes Set aside to cool enough to be able to handle then drain them saving the apricot water.
    2. 2
      Chop when cool enough, you need 1 cup. Save 1/2 a cup of the drained water or add enough water to make a 1/2 cup if it's short.
    3. 3
      Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C). Butter and flour a 9 x 5 x 3-inch metal loaf pan.
    4. 4
      Stir first 5 ingredients together in medium bowl to blend and make a well.
    5. 5
      Add the well drained and chopped apricots and mix to coat the arpicots.
    6. 6
      In another bowl whisk together honey, sugar, oil and eggs in large bowl until blended, about 3 minutes. You can do this with a mixer if you wish but if the honey flows easilt it's very easy by hand and saves getting the mixer out.
    7. 7
      Microwave the saved water to bring to a boil.
    8. 8
      Pour into the dry ingredients and fold just enough to start getting it mixed.
    9. 9
      Add in 1/2 cup boiling water and continue folding until almost fully mixed. It's ok to have some dry flour or some small lumps.
    10. 10
      Transfer batter to prepared pan.
    11. 11
      Bake until loaf is brown and tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 40-45 minutes.

      Cool in pan 10 minutes.
    13. 13
      Turn out onto rack. Wrap warm cake in foil and store at room temperature until used up.
