Harvest Loaf

This bread makes me think of New England, where I come from. The maple syrup from Vermont & New Hampshire, sunflower seeds from summer gardens and mixed dried fruit from Massachusetts cranberry bogs. The bread is not-too-sweet, but good for breakfast or with coffee or tea. This can be baked in 4 mini loaf pans or in a full-sized loaf pan. Just increase the baking time.
