How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Butter a 4 1/2 x 9-inch loaf pan and line with parchment or waxed (greaseproof) paper.
  • Place the dried apricots and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes, or until the apricots are tender.
  • Drain, reserving 1/4 cup of the liquid. Cool the apricots and roughly chop.
  • Sift the flour and baking soda together into a bowl. Add the sugar, orange zest, walnuts, and apricots.
  • In a separate bowl, beat together the orange juice, egg, melted butter, and reserved apricot liquid. Add to the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

    Sounds delightful, thanks for sharing. I imagine you can probably substitute other dried fruit?
