My co-worker brought in a huge box of plums from his tree and I decided to make some bread. Overall this is wonderful recipe and I think works best with plums that are not completely soft. I used a potatoe peeler to peel these them and it helped alot. Okay my experience with this is you can't get it wrong. On a whim I decided to make this I didn't have enought honey so I added a some sugar. Didn't have enought sugar so I used splenda for baking for part of it and didn't have walnuts so I used pecans and the batter was dry so I added another egg and a little bit of milk to make the right consistency for bread(yes it was a cook on the whim because i wanted to but didn't want to go to the store). This bread came out wonderful moist in the middle and the sweetness &tartness of the plums was a nice touch. Very good and as you can see hard to mess up LOL Read More

Not a bad bread but I think the cooking time is too long. I used a glass loaf pan and the outside browned way too much. Will def try again and will cover the top to keep from browning so much and reduce the time. Read More

I rate this with 4 stars after I added an additional egg and about 1/4 cup of milk. Before the addition of these ingredients the batter was far to thick. Read More

This makes a really great bread. But why are we peeling the plums? I pitted them cut them in quarters and pulsed them in my processor 'til they were chopped. They worked fine and we still had the extra nutrition in the skins. I did add 1/4 cup applesauce as suggested by previous cooks since the batter did seem a bit dry. Loved the extra clove flavor.

I just made this bread today using pitted prunes - it came out perfect with a few changes I reversed the amount of spices less cloves and more cinnamon and reduced the amount of sugar; also added a good 1/3 cup of milk and replaced the walnuts with pecans (the reason being that I have ruined too many recipes using walnuts since they almost always taste stale. The bread was chewy and more than sweet enough. Read More

The plums have been changed from fresh to canned to more closely match the submitted recipe. Fresh firm plums do not have the moisture needed for this recipe. Read More

SO delicious. I agree with the other reviwers that the batter was too dry. I added about 1/2 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of applesauce. Wonderful! Thank you! Read More

Very yummy bread!...I rated it 4 stars only because I ended up adding about 1/3 cup of yogurt to the batter because it was so thick it almost needed kneading! It was a great way to use up those leftover plums that had been lurking at the back of my counter. Read More

14-year-old daughter loved this bread even though none of the kids ate the canned plums for lunch. (This is why I tried to find the recipe in the first place.) Didn't put in nuts but otherwise followed the recipe. Definitely will use this over and over again. Read More
