Apricot Bran Bread with Cinnamon


An apricot bran bread recipe topped with cinnamon sugar.

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour


  • boiling water
  • 1 cup finely chopped dried apricots
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups bran cereal, such as All Bran
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • sugar or sugar-cinnamon mixture


Grease a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Heat oven to 350°.
Place chopped apricots in a bowl and pour enough boiling water over them to cover. Let stand for 10 minutes, then drain well. Sprinkle with the 3 tablespoons of sugar; stir to coat and set aside.

In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. In a separate bowl, mix together cereal, milk, eggs, and oil; add to the flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Gently stir in chopped apricot mixture.

Spoon batter into the greased loaf pan and sprinkle with a little additional sugar or a sugar-cinnamon mixture. Bake for about 60 minutes, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.
