Me time for me tends to consist of puttering around stores. On one of these outings at Walmart I came across Nature’s Harvest Ultra Apricots by the produce. They are very moist with an almost gummy candy like texture when eaten. They are really good and a new favorite of mine to replace my gummy candy weakness.
I diced them up and also used apricot preserves to make some muffins that veered away from the standard muffin flavors. These are a very quick muffin and can be mixed by hand or with a mixer.
2 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 c. sugar
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. milk
1/2 c. vegetable oil
2 large eggs
3 rounded tbsp. apricot preserves
1 1/4 c. chopped Nature’s Harvest Ultra Apricots
Preheat oven to 400° and line muffin pans with liners.
Place all of the dry ingredients into a bowl and stir together. Make a well and in another bowl whisk together the milk, oil, eggs and preserves. Pour into the well and stir until combined. Fold in the chopped apricots.
Fill liners 2/3 of the way full and bake for 16-18 minutes. Cool in pan for 5 minutes and then remove and continue to cool on wire rack or eat warm.
