Yummy apricot bread. I have an apricot tree and was looking for a recipe to use fresh apricots. I added 1/4 cup more sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon. The bread had a great texture. Next time, I would add some chopped dried apricots as well to give it a stronger apricot flavor. Thanks, Lacy for the great recipe.
