Method: 
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a 9-inch loaf pan and set aside. Soak apricots for 20 minutes in hot water to cover. Drain and chop apricots into 1/4-inch pieces. Set aside.

Beat sugar, oil and egg together in a mixing bowl. Stir in 1/4 cup water and orange juice. Add white flour, pastry flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, mixing until thoroughly combined. Stir in walnuts and reserved apricots. Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf coms out clean, 55 to 65 minutes. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to continue cooling.
