Oven Temp: 180 C / 360 F. Loaf tin 23 cm x 9 cm (9 in x 3.5 in)
Combine honey, 125 ml water and sprinkle with yeast. Leave in a warm place till foaming. This will take about 10 minutes
Put the flour, salt, yeast mixture, butter and 3/4 of the remaining water into the bowl of a mixer. Knead on low for at least 10 minutes, or until smooth and shiny and elastic.
(The extra water is just in case the mixture looks a little dry. All flour is different. You need to knead the dough till it comes together in a ball though before you even consider adding extra water)
Mix then add nuts and apricot on low. Pour onto a bench with a little flour and just knead together.
The dough needs to be soft and pliable. It will be silky and smooth once done.
Roll into a long sausage. Fold in half and twist before putting into the well greased loaf tin ( You don't have to fold it, it just looks good).
Sit in a warm place till doubled in size.
Bake for 40-50 min in the middle of a hot oven.
Cool. Slice into pieces and toast. Spread with goat cheese and drizzle with Truffle honey.
