I made this bread with a few slight changes - I didn't soak the prunes because they were already moist - so I used a whole cup of orange juice instead of half a cup (and no water) - (I did not use orange extract - but did add extra grated orange rind). I also omitted the nuts because I made it for children and lastly, I used brown sugar instead of white. <br/><br/>It was AMAZING. Thank you for this recipe. I will definitely be making it again. The children loved it (as did I!).
