      A very pretty loaf of bread that tastes delicious too. I cut the recipe in half to make a single loaf as did pammyowl, and on her advice used two small eggs. I was a little confused on the amount of prunes to use because my 1/2 cup of prunes only weighed 2.3 ounces and not 4 ounces that the recipe indicated it should be. I went ahead and increased the amount to 4 ounces to make the bread. I would probably double the cardamom next time for a stronger hint of spice (although my cardamom bottle is a few years old, might that make a difference?) Overall I really enjoyed making this bread with its lovely deep purple swirl. Thanks, Annacia [Made for I Recommend]

      Droolingly good, Anna! So happy you posted this delicious bread recipe:) I changed several things though, I added the nuts and cinnamon to the dough, left out the cardamom, not a fan of it, the rest I left alone. Oh, I did only make one loaf, but still used 2 eggs. Thanks for posting! Made for Newest Zaar 2012
