fran's apricot loaf

On a loaf roll (!) my mum has delivered up another great loaf, this time an apricot one from a recipe she got from a lady she used to work with called Fran. So thanks mum, for making it and thankyou Fran, where ever you are! Like the sultana loaf, this is great with or without butter.

140g dried apricots
1 cup boiling water
1 tsp bicarb soda
2 & 1/4 cups self raising flour
1/2 tsp salt
55g butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg

25g butter
1/4 cup rolled oats
1 tsp sugar
40g chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 180 c. Chop apricots and soak in the water with bicarb for at least 1/2 hour. Rub butter into flour & salt. Add sugar, egg & apricot mixture. Put (won't pour, use spatula) in greased loaf tin. Sprinkle some of the topping oats on then mix remaining oats with butter, melted and the sugar & walnuts. Spread over top of cake then bake for 45-50 minutes.
