Oh wow, this is sooooooo yummy! It is a dense and chewy loaf, that is filled with fudgy fruity goodness. Mmmm, pure bliss! Plus its also quite healthy, what more can you ask for? I used soft dried plums in place of the banana (which I cant have) and that worked out nicely, though next time I might just skip them alltogether. Instead of dried apricot I used dried cherries as thats what I had on hand. The cooked fruit, carrot and cinnamon mixture gave the bread a very dense fudgy consistency, that we liked a lot. Oh and the taste was soooo moreish! I only added 2 tbs of sugar to the dough, cause I like when most sweetness comes from the fruits. This way it was still super sweet and yummy. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful treat with us, Kate! Made and reviewed for Everyday Is A Holiday Tag Game April 2010.
