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.
I made some peach bread and the flavor is good. The house smells so good while baking. However, it took me 80 minutes to bake them. I wonder is it because of the riped peach?
I made this yesterday with some tangerines. It was very good, and my husband and I ate a whole loaf in 2 days! Will definitely make every time a new fruit comes into season.
I made this to use up some fresh strawberries that were beyond out-of-hand eating but still good for baking. I only had one cup of chopped berries, so I supplemented with a couple of peaches that were rolling around the produce drawer. Nice and moist, and I like that it makes two loaves (which means I could do this as a bundt without having to do math lol). Thanks for posting!
This was excellent, but I'm thinking you might have to change the name from "Fresh Fruit Bread" because I also used canned fruit, drained, and not fresh. Delicious and moist. I'll certainly make this again. And I like that it makes two loaves, one for now & one for the freezer (or a friend!)
I made this bread with fresh strawberries and it tastes like strawberry shortcake! Just delicious!! I can't wait to try it with blueberries.
I made this today, 7/1/14. It turned out amazing!!!! I absolutely love it and will keep on making it. Now is the good time as blueberries and strawberries are in season. Great recipe!!
when using can fruit do you drain it? Also, what size bread pans do you use? Thanks.
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.
