Yield: 1 Loaf
|3 teaspoons||Yeast; (active dry)|
|3 cups||Bread Flour|
|2 tablespoons||Dry milk|
|¼ cup||Apricot Jam|
|¾ cup||Dried Apricots; chopped Water|
If your machine offers the option, use the "light crust" setting as the crust browns more due to the sugar content of the jam. Try to use a jam with a high fruit content & few additives. This recipe can be baked on the regular, rapid bake, or timed settings. I have a DAK Turbo II & baked it on the reg setting. It was one of the few loaves that have turned out really well lately...think my DAK is dying; just today ordered a ZOJI from Irwin. The bread kept VERY well in a Rubbermaid container...was nice & fresh for a whole week (I forgot about the last couple of slices!). I even made it when MY mother-in-law came to visit & she LOVED it! Hope it turns out good for you.
