Apricot Cranberry Bread Recipe

Publisher Photo
I was making cranberry bread one day and wanted to try something a little different. I found a jar of apricot jam in the refrigerator and decided to spoon the jam into the center of the bread. It looked lumpy, so I took a knife and cut the jam into the bread. The end result was delicious.

The apricot preserves add a nice touch to this recipe. I've made these into mini-loaves and given them as gifts.

This was one of the best cranberry breads I have ever had. The addition of the jam was very yummy. I used peach because we had no apricot and it was delicious. (The addition of walnuts is also very tasty!) Overall everyone enjoyed it. The bread was moist and tasty!
