I used the 3/4 cup of sugar and think next time I would add a whole cup. I would have liked it just a little sweeter. It came out very nice and I would definitely make it again.

This baked up into a beautiful, well rounded loaf that was done in about 50 minutes. The bread is full of flavor and very moist. The combination of dates and dried apricots is wonderful. I did use the 3/4 cup brown sugar, recipe #145505 in place of the cinnamon and pecans in place of walnuts. Thanks much for posting this delicious recipe.
