This is bread with the jam already inside! It's a coffee bread, a snack
bread or the perfect after-school bread.
The finely textured sweet bread also happens to be lovely, with the summery orange apricots floating in the golden loaf.
Use the "light" crust feature if your machine provides it.
Use dried apricots preserved without sulfur dioxide, which sometimes deactivates the yeast.
Use a jam with a high fruit content and few other additives.
Use regular, rapid or delayed time bake cycle. 1 ts Yeast, fast rise or machine, or 3 ts Yeast, active dry.
Makes 1 loaf of bread.
