Ginger Apricot Quick Bread Recipe
Although this yummy bread is good on its own, you can spread it with butter or lightly sweetened cream cheese. It is similar to a cake, so it can be baked in a tube or Bundt pan instead of two loaf pans and served as a cake; top it with a light glaze if you like.
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups pitted and diced fresh apricots
1/2 cup candied ginger, chopped (easiest when done with kitchen scissors)
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Spray two medium (8½ x 4½ x 2½ inches) loaf pans with non-stick spray.
- Beat eggs with the sugar and oil.
- Measure the salt, flour, baking powder, and baking soda into a fine strainer set over the egg mixture; mix well at low speed.
- Fold in the apricots and ginger.
- Divide the mixture between the two prepared pans and place in the preheated oven.
- Bake for about 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
- Remove the loaves from the oven, let sit 5 minutes, then invert onto cooling racks. Let the loaves cool thoroughly before slicing.
