Happy August to you all!!!
It’s a drizzly day so I thought I would jump on and share with you another of my family’s favourite.
Dad wrote this recipe out for me many years ago after visiting my parents where I enjoyed more of my mum’s great home baking.
Nuts and dried fruits are healthful foods because of their nutrient profiles. They provide dietary fibre, potassium and a variety of health protective bio active compounds. Nuts also are a source of protein and monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids.
This recipe makes two loaves so you can enjoy one and put the other in the freezer for unexpected guests.
1 1/2 cups apricot nectar (415ml)
1 1/2 cups raisins
12 dried apricots, chopped
1 cup sugar
1 good tablespoon butter
grated rind of 1 orange
1/4 cup milk
2 1/2 cups plain flour
2 level teaspoons carb, soda
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 level teaspoon salt
Again, how simple was that!!!
Slice and enjoy warm or cold with some butter and your freshly brewed cuppa.
