Prune Raisin Bread
A nicely spiced prune bread with the added sweetness of raisins. This hearty bread gets it deep, rich flavor from molasses. Full of prunes and raisins, it’s also good for you. This is a must try bread, flavorful, moist and full of fiber.
I have recently “re-discovered” prunes or dried plums. To learn more about this forgotten but good for you fruit. Read more about prunes here: Let’s Talk Prunes
For me, quick breads are a slice of comfort. If you look through our Recipe Box, you’ll discover that we love quick breads here on T2T. Quick breads are not only “quick” to make but you can mix together any combination of ingredients and you’ll have a delicious loaf of bread in no time. From start to finish, most quick breads are ready in under an hour to seventy minutes. For breakfast, I often have a slice of bread with my cup of coffee and I always have a loaf of quick bread in my freezer at all times….you never know when you’ll want a slice of comfort. Another plus, quick breads freeze beautifully.
