      Simple recipe that can be used with all sorts of fruits and/or nuts! I made this with apples, plum and persimmons (aka the leftover fruit!) and some pecans. I brought to the office and it disappeared quickly! Will definitely make again!

      Sharon, this is a very, very lovely loaf of bread! Its cakey with a soft inside and a lovely crunchy top. I used a mix of blueberries and red currants from a local farmers' market as my choice of fruit and might have used more than asked for as I just threw them in without measuring. This is so easy and quick to make and the end result is stunning! I can see me making this very often again with all different types of fruits (maybe cherries next) and perhaps even trying a savoury version with fresh veggies and cheese. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this winner with us, Sharon! Made and reviewed for the Red, White and Blue Event in the Bevy Tag Game July 09.

      I used the leftover pears from making some homemade pear vodka in this bread. Excellent texture and taste. I followed the recipe exactly and my two loaves were beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for Photo Tag.
