Prune and Molasses Bread

Pat Duran


This is such a flavorful bread..My family cannot get enough of it.
It has the taste of a brown sugar and pumpkin -even though neither of these ingredients are in the bread..I just love the moistness and texture of this bread- I hope you give this recipe a try...
Note this recipe will be great substituting pureed fruit,such as- peaches, pineapple, pears, apricots, or applesauce..etc
Best kind found in the baby food aisle at grocery store.
