For an extra ooey gooey treat, add half a cupful of dark brown sugar atop the filling before rolling.

This can make a great turkey or ham sandwich, toast, or even French Toast!

Enjoy!

How to Make Plum Blueberry Lemon Bread & Cinnamon Spice Swirl

Step-by-Step

  1. If using the dried fruit, place all of the fruit mix in a bowl barely cover with hot water. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, place all bread ingredients, set aside.
  3. In the measuring cup (Pyrex), put the honey/dark brown sugar and pour over with hot water. Mix completely.
  4. Then add, milk and stir. Follow that with the yeast. Whisking in completely, not leaving any clumps. Set aside for 15 minutes.
  5. Pour yeast into bread ingredients. Mix well. Then add fruit mix to dough. Mix well.
  6. Dump out mix onto a floured surface. Knead for 10 minutes. Place dough in a large, lidded, greased pot. Leave in a warm place for 1 hour.
  7. Then dump out mixture again. Degas. Fold like an envelope in thirds. Then repeat from a different angle. Again return to the pot. Leave for an hour.
  8. To make filling, take all the ingredients, room temperature and mix together.
