I made this for Don the other day, and of course, had to try a slice. He likes date-nut bread, which is usually a quick bread - made with lots of sugar and fat. This one's a little lighter, since it's a bread machine recipe, and I used some whole wheat flour in it. I got the recipe from Linda, a fellow baker on my bread machine Yahoo group.
Fruit Bread - High Altitude version
from Linda Darwent
1 1/3 cups liquid (I used water), warmed slightly
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 cups bread flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup dried fruit (I used chopped dates; Linda has used cranberries; you can try apricots, raisins...any dried fruit)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1 teaspoon bread machine yeast
Place all ingredients in machine in order listed. Use sweet or whole wheat setting. Makes 1 1-pound loaf.
