Sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a mixing bowl.
Add the sugar, walnuts and apricots.
Put the corn syrup into a saucepan and pour in the milk.
Heat together until the syrup has melted into the milk.
Beat the syrupy milk into the flour mixture, then the egg.
Scrape the mixture into the prepared loaf pan and bake in a preheated 325° oven for about 1 1/4 hours, until a knife inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.

To make the icing, mix together the confectioners' sugar and lemon juice, beating until the icing is smooth.
Cover the top of the teabread with icing, letting it trickle down the sides.
Decorate with chopped walnuts.
