      If there were a way, I would rate this recipe 50 stars! I'm not kidding - this is the most delicious quick bread recipe I have ever made or had (and that's really saying something!). I used regular red plums off our backyard tree (chopped up in chunks with the skin still on) and strawberry yogurt. I also folded the plum chunks into the batter rather than the layering technique described. The loaves are moist and fragrant but most of all the taste is divine. The skin-on plum chunks collapse into sweet tart & tangy little fruity bits of heaven. The batter is strong enough to hold the fruit in place rather than having it all drop to the bottom. I'm telling you - you cannot beat this bread for a fabulous way to use fresh plums. A big A plus, 5 stars and 2 thumbs up! UPDATE: I just wanted to say that I made this recipe again and it came out just a fabulous as before! This time I sprinkled sugar on top and it made a delightful sugary crust. I'm uploading a picture so you can see how yummy it is!

      What can I say except... perfection, I made this yesterday and only half a loaf is left if that, next time I am hiding one just for me, this is like heaven in a loaf pan. Thank you!

      Well, unlike many of the reviews I have read here, I did exactly what it said to do and it is wonderful!!! We planted 2 miniature plum trees last year and when they were filled with plums I realized I had no idea what to do with them besides just pick and eat from the tree. This is the first recipe I came across and just love it. The fresh fresh plums give it just the right amount of tart in the sweet mix! I am a chocolate lover, but ya know I think this might just beat chocolate.
