    Noo's Note:

    I absolutely love this recipe! It’s so easy and so yummy. I don't make it as much as I used to for the simple reason that I tend to make a little piggy of myself when it’s in the house, and no-one else gets a look in! It’s great for afternoon/high tea with a little butter spread on it, and the kids love it!

      Mmmm, what a FANTASTIC LOAF!!! I made it for breakkie this morning using fresh nectarines and cherries and it came out so moist and tender on the inside with a lovely crunchy crust on top! :) Following Annacia's lead I too used applesauce in place of the butter, which worked out nicely. Mine was cherry and apple, so my bread looks a bit darker than the others. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this lovely recipe with us! I cant wait to make it again! Made and reviewed for PRMR August 09.

      After I bought a new battery for my scale (which I have been needing to do for awhile) my only question was whats gas mark 5?. I made 2 small 5x3 loaves and baked them in heavy ceramic dishes at 375 and they were done in 30 mins. To lighten the fat and sugar I used 3 Tbsp of light margarine and 3 Tbsp of unsweetened applesauce for the requested butter, replaced the sugar with 1/3 cup of Splenda, used 1/4 cup of egg white for the whole egg and skim milk. My fruit choices were candied lemon peel, golden raisins and dried cherries. The end result is terrific. It has a lot of flavor and has that rich taste even though it's been lightened a lot. This will be grand for the holiday season (possibly with a very light glaze drizzled over the loaf) but it's easy enough for pleasing the family just because you love them.
