1. Preheat oven to 375F. Spray a 9-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray, dust with flour and set aside.

2. Beat margarine and Sugar together in a large mixing bowl using an electric beater. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until mixture is light in color and eggs are well combined.

3. Add soymilk and orange extract, beating until well combined. Add flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder, and beat batter on low speed for about 1 minute, or until smooth. Fold orange zest, pecans and dried apricots in by hand just until incorporated. Spoon batter into prepared bread pan. Place apricot halves on surface down center of loaf.

4. Bake for about 1 hour, or until top is golden and a tester inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven, take bread from pan and cool loaf on rack until just warm. Stir together orange juice and Sugar, if using, and drizzle mixture over top, letting Sugar mixture firm before slicing.
