“This can be made with either candied orange or chopped marinated prunes, or a combination of both…It is an excellent gift bread, makes pleasant toast, and keeps well.”
-James Beard, Beard on Bread

I couldn’t track down any candied orange, and know from Prune Bread that I hate prunes, so I used candied pineapple to make my Quick Fruit Bread.

Here are the ingredients:

Since this is a baking powder bread, all I had to do was chop up the pineapple, melt the butter, mix everything together, and pour the batter into a 9 x 5 loaf pan.

After 47 minutes at 375 degrees, the bread was done as gauged by my cake tester.

Quick Fruit Bread tastes like a baking powder biscuit studded with chunks of whatever fruit you happen to use.  I discovered that I like candied pineapple about as much as I like prunes, so it wasn’t much of a hit with me.  Mike thought that it was good.  Since I deviated from the recipe in a pretty major way, I don’t feel like I can pass judgement on it one way or the other.  However, I do think that I would have enjoyed it more if I had used either the candied orange called for, or dried apples and some cinnamon.
