Apricot Bread with Hazelnuts

Hazelnuts, also know as filberts, are popular in French and Italian baking. These round nuts encased in a hard shell have a delightful crunch and rich, buttery flavor that shine in quick loaf breads, especially in combination with dried fruits. Hazelnuts have a thin inner skin that can be removed, if desired. Bake the nuts on a baking sheet in a preheated 325deg.F oven, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes. While the nuts are still warm, wrap in a coarse-textured kitchen towel and rub vigorously to remove most of the skins.

didn't quite live up to expectations
August 3, 2016
I followed the recipe to a "t". Before putting the batter into the pans, I tasted it and thought it seemed "doughy" - in taste, not texture. I should have listened to my inner voice that said to add some vanilla or almond or booze but I left it just as it was written in the recipe. Wow. SO BAD. I don't know how others managed to "make it disappear". It just was BAD. I'm guessing if I toast it as slices, it might work for breakfast but otherwise, I'll throw it out. I feel like they have to have left something out of the recipe. It baked fine. Looks good but tastes awful. I even roasted the hazelnuts and took off the skins though the recipe didn't indicate to do so... Such a disappointment and a huge waste of money.

Tasty Snack Cake!

This recipe works and is very adaptable. We made two mini loaves and 12 large muffins and used dried mangos and cherries instead of apricots. The results were tasty and satisfying. Yum!
Pros: Yield, Healthy, Adaptable, Will Make Again
