Gluten-Free Agave Apricot Quick Bread

Posted Apr 06 2011 12:00am
I love creating gluten-free baked goods, especially when it involves my good  ol’ gluten-free blogger buddies.  Recently, I joined a few of my favorite gluten-free ladies in a Ratio Rally for the month of April, where our host Silvana Nardone of Silvana’s Kitchen is posting all of our fabulous Quick Bread Recipes.  So, be sure to take a look at the other amazing gluten-free quick bread recipes in Silvana’s Gluten-Free Kitchen for some tasty ideas of what to whip up during these Spring-like April days.

This was a fun little recipe to create and took quite a bit of recipe testing to nail down this perfectly moist n’ delicious bread.  I’ve never created a bread with fresh apricots and I thought, why not?  I purchased a few at the market and came home to slice n’ dice ‘em up, then tossed them with a touch of sweet agave nectar, a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg and then squared it off with a surprising citrus touch with a bit of fresh orange juice n’ orange zest.  Now, here’s where I’ll throw you off, macadamia nuts? You betcha.

I’ve been known to toss my macadamia nuts into my muffins n’ breads n’ cookies with white and dark chocolate, but I thought I’d give ‘em a whirl and pair them with my fresh apricot quick bread.  The result? Perfection.

This may be the start of a macadamia n’ fresh fruit rally.  So, get ready for some more soon-to-be macadamias poppin’ up in my recipes this Spring.  I’ve purchased a large bundle from Whole Foods Market this weekend and it’s goin’ fast.

I’ve been enjoying a slice in the morning with fresh jam, another in the afternoon toasted and crumbled into ‘croutons’ atop my salads and then the final slice after dinner with a nice dollop of warm homemade nut butter.

Can you ask for anything better?

I didn’t think so.

I’m carbo loading.

And I love it.

Bring on the Gluten-Free Carbs.

Bring on the Gluten-Free Quick Bread.

Because this baby is sure to knock your socks off.

Go ahead, slice it up…dice it up.

Whichever way you choose, I know you’ll be bakin’ up another loaf next week.

Trust me on this one.

Trust me.

Have fun, heat up the oven and get ready to put your gluten-free pantry items to work.

So, on this fabulous early April day, whether you’ve got April showers or flowers, slice off a hunk n’ smile.

Because it’s gluten-free after all.

Delish.  I’m full and my tiny Manhattan apartment’s open for anyone who’s ready for a slice, hehe…
