    Thorsten's Note:

    A delicious sweet treat. Every year around November (or sooner) it is time to make fruit bread with mixed dried fruit. There is no Advent season in Germany without fruit bread. I found this easy to make fruit bread in a small book on Christmas bakery. I have changed it slightly and make several of this bread each year. The bread (which is more like a cake) is best, when you store it for at least for a few days wrapped tightly in aluminum foil. I love the taste and the different flavors of this bread.

      This was delicious! I made it with some Purdy's dried fruit received as gift at Christmas. It made four small loaves which I distributed amongst my work team who also loved it. Will definitely make this again.

      I used a fruit meadly of dried apricot, apple, peach and pear. This made for a delightful fruitcake. For the last 20 minutes of baking I covered with foil as it was starting to get a little dark. I had never baked with rye flour before and loved its suttle taste.
