Prune Bread

Our banana bread recipe is quite popular and successful at home and with our friends so my wife stated to use that as a base in our several sweet bread recipes with some minor adjustments. Some of those recipes are the apple cranberry bread and this prune bread featured in this post. A really easy and simple bread to make and a really good use for that over-ripened bananas, a good snack or as a lunchbox item for your little ones.

    You know we love our banana bread! How clever to adapt it for other fruits as well. This sounds tasty – especially with that confectioner’s sugar dusted over the top!

    Do you mash the prunes? Dice them? Soak them first to rehydrate?
