Plum Bread

Rated as 4.54 out of 5 Stars

"This is called a bread, but tastes more like a cake. I make this mostly during the holidays. The spices in this cake just lend themselves to eggnog and Christmas smells. The recipe will make 1 bundt cake, 4 small loaves, or 2 medium loaves."

  3. Mix wet and dry ingredients together. Transfer batter to prepared pan(s).

this was great! i added tea (instead of cloves and nutmeg) to both the frosting/sauce and the batter, which i thought was delicious. it's best in small doses, though.

I made muffins and mini muffins. Instead of making the lemon juice and powdered sugar, I used cream cheese frosting. They were gobbled up. I couldn't eat nuts, but next time I'll put them in ...

I can't stop eating this! I highly recommend trying this bread/cake. (It's a cake) I used fresh plums..just put them in the blender. Used 1 1/2 cups of pureed plum and reduced oil to 1/2 cup. ...
