Plum Bread

Plum Bread

This is called a bread, but tastes more like a cake. I make this mostly during the holidays. The spices in this cake just lend themselves to eggnog and Christmas smells. Recipe will make: 4 small loaves, or 2 medium loaves, or 1 large loaf, or 1 bundt cake.

Oh so delicious. I definitely recommend very ripe plums instead of the babyfood. i used about 1 1/4 cups plum puree. this recipe is also delicious for muffins. mmmmmmmmmm

I changed it a little. I put one and 1/2 cups of plum preserve I made with red plums, and instead of walnuts I chopped up the red plums and mixed them inside the batter. (I also nixed the red food coloring). After pouring the batter I spooned several t spoons of the plum preserve on top and swirled in a design. I nixed the sugar topping because it was sweet with the preserve and a bit tart as well. I scooped vanilla ice cream on top and it was done. YUM!

this was great! i added tea (instead of cloves and nutmeg) to both the frosting/sauce and the batter, which i thought was delicious. it's best in small doses, though.
