Nut Bread (Pecans and dried Fruit)

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
3/4 cup chopped pecans (roasted)
6 dried apricots
2 tablespoons dried cranberries

Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Grease the interior of an 8 by 4 by 2 inch baking pan and set aside.
In a large bowl stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Make a well in the center and set aside.
In a medium bowl combine the egg, milk and oil.
Pour all the mixture over the flour and stir.
Fold in the roasted nuts and dried nuts.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
If it starts burning before the time is over, just cover with aluminum foil.
Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 min.
Remove from pan.
Cool completely on wire rack.
Wrap and store overnight before slicing.
