Quick and Easy Apricot Bread with Almonds Recipe

PREPARATION of dried apricot and almond bread

  • Soak the dried apricots in warm water for half an hour and chop them to taste (you can use a thermomix or a food processor, although I like to leave them with a coarse texture).
  • Mix with the ground almonds and the rest of the ingredients stirring well and let stand in the refrigerator to cool the mixture and compact.
  • Form round buns and flatten them as 2 cm thick cakes.
  • Put some whole almonds inside and cover with more mixture.
  • Once the cakes are formed, roll them in powdered sugar or put them between wafers or glossy baking paper.
  • The dried apricot bread is wrapped in cling film and stored in the refrigerator with a weight on top for a couple of days before consumption.


To make this dried apricot bread you can use hazelnuts instead of almonds. It is convenient to use oiled latex gloves so that it does not stick to your hands.
