Tastiest Golden Brown Apricot Nut Bread

Italian Bread Recipe


  • ½ recipe simple yeast dough
  • 1 cup apricot preserves – or your favorite
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tb water
  • ¾ cup sliced almonds
  • Sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 375º
  2. Grease a cookie sheet.
  3. Roll the dough out to a 16X12-inch rectangle on a lightly floured board.
  4. Spread preserves down the center of the long side of the dough. Spread to a 4-inch width.
  5. Make cuts in the dough on either side of the preserves in the center in 1-inch intervals.
  6. Fold the strips over the preserves, alternating sides to cover the preserves completely.
  7. Beat the egg in the water and brush all over the dough and sprinkle with almonds and sugar. (I mix the almonds in a small bowl with the sugar. After I spread this over the bread, I then sprinkle any remaining sugar.)
  8. Bake in a preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes or just until golden.
  9. Loosen under the bread with dough scraper or sharp knife and carefully slide bread onto a wire rack to cool.

Buon Mangiati!
