I was given a bag of dried plums and had no idea what to do with them. I found this recipe and decided to try it. I doubled the recipe figuring I'd make a loaf for us and a loaf for my father in law. I used two loaf pans that were smaller than the suggested size. They smelled delicious baking. Much to my surprise my children (ages 12, 10, 8, 4) all said it was very good! This recipe deserves all five stars just for that!
Really good. I doubled the recipe and got one large loaf and two mini loaves. I think the single recipe might make a rather small loaf. It was easy and a nice change of pace from regular quick breads I make. Next time, I think I might add some orange zest to the dry ingredients and orange juice instead of water to the cooking water after draining the plums.
This bread is delicious, and pretty low in calories too. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I used "Sugar In the Raw" turbinado sugar crystals for the coarse sugar to sprinkle on top. It was great, especially slightly toasted with cream cheese.
This bread is wonderful. I followed the recipe as written and it came out wonderful (in high altitude).
