    3. MIX the flour with the baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and ginger. Add to the egg mixture.

    4. STIR in the nuts and dried apricots. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for about an, hour until a toothpick comes out clean.

    5. COOL fir 15 minutes, release from the pan and serve warm with butter, cream cheese or apricot preserves. Cream cheese and apricot preserves makes a great sandwich! Serve it with a cup of black tea; Earl Grey or Assam would be especially nice.)
