    Lorraine of AZ's Note:

    This ever-popular tea bread is made Christmas-pretty with the addition of colorful candied fruits. This bread may look like a fruit cake but the taste is pure banana-delicious! I like to use candied red and green cherries and yellow candied pineapple, which I coarsely chop, in this bread for the prettiest look.
