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.
Oh yes! I forgot I made this for Christmas breakfast! It was excellent with butter.
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.
Thorsten, this IS a delicious bread. I made up the batter and then filled two baby loaf pans with half the batter. I added cloves and cinnamon to the second half and made two more baby loaves with that. Still can't decide which is better. The rye flour really does give this bread a distincitve taste, yet it is very light. Everyone loved it!
