Today, along with the laundry & phone calls I decided to whip up a couple of these. One to be sliced up for the kids lunches & the other for a friend who needing to increase her iron intake. Did you know the dried apricots are a super source of iron?
Carrot Apricot Bread
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup ap flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup shredded carrot
1 cup apple sauce
1/4 cup veg. oil
2/3 cup diced dried apricots
Bake at 350 for approx. 45 - 50 mins.
Split dough into 2 loaf pans for best results. If you'd like to switch it up into dessert just drizzle with a little apple glaze.
1 cup icing sugar
4 tsp apple juice
* before drizzling, poke the top of each loaf all over with a toothpick for best results.
Hope you give it a try.....it's super good according to Anthony & Liam !!!
