I bake this bread weekly and use a variety of fruits available in the junior baby food lines. The recipe came from a friend, who made it for our Christian Mothers' Club. When I'm asked to bake for lunches, bake sales or other benefits, I usually make this bread. -Shirley Kmiotek, Northbridge, Massachusetts

"However, not being a prune fan, I use applesauce, whatever nuts I have on hand, sometimes I use dried cranberries."
