Absolutely Apricot Recipe
3 tsp yeast, (active dry)
3 cup bread flour
2 tbsp dry milk
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup apricot jam
3/4 cup dried apricots, chopped water
If your machine offers the option, use the "light crust" setting as
the crust browns more due to the sugar content of the jam. Try to use
a jam with a high fruit content & few additives. This recipe can be
baked on the regular, rapid bake, or timed settings. I have a DAK
Turbo II & baked it on the reg setting. It was one of the few loaves
that have turned out really well lately...think my DAK is dying; just
today ordered a ZOJI from Irwin. The bread kept VERY well in a
Rubbermaid container...was nice & fresh for a whole week (I forgot
about the last couple of slices!). I even made it when MY
mother-in-law came to visit & she LOVED it! Hope it turns out good

Advice on losing weight
If you enjoy your food, but want to become thin and also improve your overall physical condition, then, as most people know, you should follow a meticulously prepared wholesome dietary regime. Theoretically, this needs to involve 5 standard portions of grains, cereals and vegetables every day and also contain the optimum fusion of important nutrients.
Some reduced carb diet pointers:
* Food labels can be misleading
Don't trust food labeling that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the rear of the tin or package. Quite a few are only slightly less and in some cases still greater than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are just the same.
* Use soya flour or soy baking mix.
When you need to use flour for baking, substitute soya flour or a bake mix like Atkins baking mix. In many cases, you can change your most popular recipes that use standard wheat flour to use these low carbohydrate alternatives.
