If you like Apricots you'll love this bread. I'm not huge on the taste because i'm not an apricot lover but the almonds and the cinnamon were a perfect addition. I followed recipe exactly and had no problem with the consistency or the time it took to cook. I put the batter in 3 mini pans and it took about 50 minutes to cook instead of the 60 and it came out just fine. I may make this again if I can get my kids to eat it and if I do so I'll dice the apricots up in finer pieces. Also use ripe apricots mine were just too sour. Also, don't cut down on time by not toasting the almonds. I loved them toasted in this recipe
