    Well! I thought, 10 apricots, that's not much fruit. But it's perfect in this delicately flavoured loaf. I made it with slivered almonds, and added a little almond extract. My husband loved it he had two pieces warm with butter! Thanks for a keeper!

    I made this for our Christmas brunch and it was a hit with the whole family! I also made an extra loaf for my mom and aunt and they raved about it also. I love the orange and apricot flavors. Thanks for sharing!

    This was a delicious loaf of bread. It had a heavier texture, similar to pound cake, and the apricot and orange flavors were delightful. We really enjoyed it and with teenage boys coming and going from my house it didn't last even 24 hours. The only drawback was it only made one loaf!


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Food.com. Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
