Cranberry Apricot Bread

Today was a totally wasted day and I am okay with that. I slept till noon which isn’t a bad thing considering I usually only sleep about 3-4 hours a night lately. I spent the rest of the day making a small dent in the tower of movies I bought on black Friday. The only time I got off the couch was to make myself a treat of cranberry apricot bread. It was a totally useless, totally lazy, totally awesome way to spend the last Sunday in November.

Cranberry Apricot Bread

½ cup flour
¼ cup sugar
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ cup dried cranberries
¼ cup dried apricots, chopped
2 TBS pecans, chopped (optional)
1 large egg
1 TBS milk
1 TBS melted butter
¼ tsp fresh lemon zest
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 5×3 inch loaf pan with cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and baking powder. Add the dried fruit and nuts. Stir to coat with flour. In another bowl, combine the egg, milk, melted butter and lemon zest. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in the loaf pan for 5 minutes before turning out onto a rack to cool completely.
