Just a little too dry. Moisten with the water apricots are soaked in. When loaf has cooled wrap in foil & refrigerate 12 hours.

This was so delicious that the entire loaf was gone in one day! I also only used 1/2 cup of walnuts and found that to be a perfect balance against the sweet chewy apricots. I substituted 1 cup of white flour with 1/2 c ww and 1/2 c oat bran, which gave the bread a nice crunchiness. I'll be making this one for years.

Lovely bread, the house smelt great when this was being baked. I used only half a cup of chopped walnuts and 1 more tbsp. of margarine(I substituted the butter with margarine). I served this with grilled bananas.
