Pumpkin Prune Quick Bread

This recipe is a delicious change of pace from the usual pumpkin bread quick loaf. The hubs is a big fan of prune in baked goods, as well as pumpkin-anything. So the combination was an instant hit with him.

Dried fruits work well in all manner of quick breads, as do nuts. Which this loaf has as well, with the walnuts. The combination gives each bite a burst of moist, sweet dried plum and a pleasing, nutty crunch. Together with the pumpkin, it’s a perfect bread for autumn.

Enjoy this as the days grow shorter and the leaves begin to turn color (or the sunsets blaze color if you’re further south). It goes great with a cup of coffee, glass of milk, or some sweet cider. Enjoy!
