This is a refreshing recipe for the best of the summers fruits. My mom made this often and we would always beg for her to make it more often

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!
