Apricot Spiced Quick Bread

Apricot Spiced Quick Bread is a great tea time - or any time - bread. It's wholesome, spicy (ginger, coriander and cinnamon), lightly sweet and delicious.


1/3 cup chopped dried apricots
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1-1/2 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup liquid egg substitute OR 1 egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3/4 cup buttermilk


Place apricots and pineapple juice in a small saucepan. Warm over medium heat until bubbling. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.

In a large bowl, mix together whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, brown sugar, ginger, coriander and cinnamon.

In a separate bowl, beat together egg, vegetable oil and buttermilk; combine with cooled apricot mixture. Gradually stir buttermilk/apricot mixture into flour mixture until blended. Pour batter into prepared 9x5 inch loaf pan.

Bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let cool 5 minutes then loosen sides of loaf with a blunt knife. Remove from pan and allow to cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.

Did You Know?

While fresh apricots are tops nutritionally, don't discount dried apricots and canned apricots. Canned apricots provide much nutrition despite some losses in vitamin C and potassium during processing.
