Delicate flavor, not as strongly "apricot" tasting as I had hoped, but still very good. I doubled the recipe, and it didn't take it long to completely disappear.

Good, but not very apricot-y. I used several fresh skinned apricots, pureed one cup, and then finely diced one more apricot to add some texture. The flavor was still barely there, but a good tasting bread anyway.

I tried this recipe because I had some canned apricots I wasn't sure what to do with. I would absolutely make this again. The whole family loved it. I did make 2 changes; I sustituted margarine for the shortening and I substituted pecans for the walnuts. It was moist and the flavor was great!
