Mix together the apricots, stem ginger, raisins and orange juice and leave to soak for 30 minutes.

Grease and line the base of a 900g loaf tin using the oil and non-stick parchment paper.

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Sift the flour into a large bowl and stir in the SPLENDA® Granulated.

Beat the eggs into the apricot mixture. Make a well in the middle of the flour and add the apricot mixture gradually, beating to make a batter.

Pour into the tin and bake for 45 minutes until golden and an inserted skewer comes out clean.

Leave in the tin for 10 minutes before cooling on a wire rack.
