Lemon-Apricot Bread

This recipe came from one of my lower fat cookbooks. It has a ton of flavor but is lower in fat and calories than other recipes:

1 1/3 cups nonfat buttermilk
1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
1/4 cup low fat margarine, melted
2 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup sugar (try using some Splenda and some sugar)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 egg, beaten lightly
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind

Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, sugar and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, combine the buttermilk, apricots, melted margarine, beaten egg and lemon rind. Add to dry ingredients and mix just until moistened.

Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray. Pour batter into loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Allow to cool 10 minutes before removing from pan.
