Apricot Almond Loaf

XP wanted a bread with almonds so threw this in the bread machine just after breakfast. Didn't toast the almonds. Based on Sour Cherry Almond Loaf recipe from 300 Best Canadian Bread Machine Recipes.

  • 1 1/3 c warm milk
  • 1/2 t almond extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1.5 t salt
  • 2 T maple syrup
  • 2 T canola oil
  • 3 3/4 c flour (all purpose or bread*)
  • 1 1/4 t yeast
  • 2/3 c chopped apricots
  • 2/3 c slivered almonds [toasted]
  1. Place dough ingredients (not the apricots and almonds) in bread machine. Set to 2 lb Sweet Cycle, dark. 
  2. At sound of beep, add the apricots and almonds.


For toasting the almonds, set on baking sheet at 350F for 10 min. Remove when lightly browned. They'll continue to darken as they cool.


Use other dried fruits: blueberries, cranberries, apples, raisins, sour cherries
