Friends and family will rush to get another slice of this quick bread shared by Deb Thierwechter, who bakes these tasty loaves in her Clayton, Delaware kitchen. Mild plum and cinnamon make a mouthwatering combination. No one will guess the secret ingredient is baby food.

"Moist brown quick bread with good flavor. I used a 12-ounce can of Solo Prune cake and Pastry Filling instead of the baby food and it turned out great! Will definitely be making this again!"
