1/2 C. dried apricots, chopped fine
1 egg
1 C. granulated sugar
2 T. melted butter
2 C. flour
2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. baking soda
1/2 C. orange juice
1/4 C. water
1 C. chopped Brazil nuts
3/4 t. salt

Beat egg until light, stir in sugar and mix well. Stir in butter. Sift flour with baking powder, soda and salt. Add alternately with the orange juice and water to the sugar mixture. Add Brazil nuts and apricots. Mix well. Pour into greased bread pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

I didn’t have Brazil nuts on hand so I substituted almonds and that worked out fine. The apricot and orange flavor together was great!
