This was delicious, but it should be called Apricot Fruitcake, as it was very much like a holiday fruitcake. It was also very expensive to make...$10 for the apricots alone. Due to that and the $6 price tag on the bottle of apricot nectar, I bought a $2.89 bottle of Bolthouse Farms C-Boost Fruit Smoothie, made with mango, cherries, and apples, for the 1/3 cup of juice needed for the cake. It seemed to work fine to me. I also made a glaze using 2 tablespoons of that juice and 1 cup of powdered sugar, I would make this again, but with fewer apricots, perhaps 2 1/2 cups and see what happens. I used 1 tablespoon of ground ginger since mine was old and will probably increase it to 1 1/2 next time (or buy a new jar and keep it at 1 tablespoon). I also used Apple Pie Spice for the mixed spice. By the way, a 2-pound loaf pan measures 10x5x3. I will definitely hang on to this recipe for the holidays! Thanks for posting it.
