TWD: Apricot Nut Bread



Today's TWD recipe was chosen by Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet. Recipe can be found at her blog HERE or on page 228 of Baking by Dorie Greenspan.

I'm not a fan of dates so I used chopped, dried apricots and baked this in a cake pan with a sprinkling of streusel topping instead of a loaf pan. It turned out kind of like a coffee cake. Yum!

The apricots in lieu of dates are a great choice - yum!

We are twins this week - I used dried apricots too. There were no dates at my store. Weird, huh? Anyway, mine is a very pretty cake, but we found it to be a bit dry. Yours looks moist and delicious.

My husband loved the dates but I would prefer the apricots and want to make this again with them.

You made some good changes.

I think apricots are a great idea! I love your bread/coffee cake! I used chocolate chips because I didn't have any fruit around:)

Streusel makes everything better, doesn't it? And I love the idea of using apricots. Lovely cake!

I used to bake with apricots and I need to do that more. I like dates so I really liked this week's choice. Good call adding the topping!

Though I do like dates, apricots sounds even better and I LOVE making it into a coffee cake with the streusel topping!
