Top Review by Sherri35

This bread had a very nice apricot flavor and we loved how the top got a little crunchy! The only substitute I had to make was peach juice in place of orange juice or lemonade. I was anxious to try the recipe and only had the peach juice. Thanks for a great bread that my whole family enjoyed.
