I had a lot of plums on my tree and could not find a plum bread recipe, so I tweaked a banana bread recipe and found a new favorite recipe! I hope you enjoy it too!
1 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. baking soda
1/8 t. salt
1/4 t. ground cinnamon or cardamom
1 t. finely shredded lemon or orange peel (optional)
1/2 c. chopped walnuts, pecans or sliced almonds (optional)
1 c. diced plums (or bananas)
3/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. cooking oil (OR 2 T. bean puree and 2 T. oil)
Mix all dry ingredients. In another bowl, mix all wet ingredients. Combine and stir until just moistened and still lumpy. Pour batter into a greased 8x4x2-inch loaf pan. Bake in a preheated 350°
oven for 50-55 minutes or til toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Let cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and enjoy warm or cool completely on rack, wrap, and store overnight before slicing to help flavors mix a little more!
Makes 1 loaf
Serves 16 1/2-inch pieces or 8 1-inch pieces
I baked mine in my Sun Oven and got to enjoy both a cool house and a delicious dessert!
