Baked apricot-almond bread
This either bread, or a cupcake, or a pie can be prepared with fresh apricots or canned.
If your apricots are fresh, you will need to take preliminary steps: divide them into halves, take out the seeds, bake for half an hour at 200 degrees. By the way, apricots of any condition are suitable – both unripe and ripe. With canned all of these stages can be avoided.

- 1 cup orange juice
- 3 cups flour

- soda on the tip of a knife + vinegar for quenching
