"This is called a bread, but tastes more like a cake. I make this mostly during the holidays. The spices in this cake just lend themselves to eggnog and Christmas smells. The recipe will make 1 bundt cake, 4 small loaves, or 2 medium loaves."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

2 (4 ounce) jars
plum baby food
red food coloring
2 1/2 tablespoons
I pureed 4 peeled over-ripe plums in the blender instead of using baby food. Added 3 Tablespoons flour and a pinch more baking soda. I didn't use food coloring. I baked them as 2 9x9 square cakes and it tastes just like applesauce spice cake. Very good. Makes an great dessert.
Unfortunately, I won't be making this again. I followed the reviews of cooks who used fresh plums and ran them through the blender, used 1.5 cups of blended plums, cut the oil to 1/2 cup, and baked it as directed. While the flavour was nice, the texture was quite soggy....sigh. I was so hopeful!!!
this is so yum! can't buy plum baby food in oz so i pureed a tin of whole plums without the juice and it makes a little more then is needed so worked out great! just need to add 2 tablespoons more flour and a pinch more baking soda. will definately use for xmas pressies~ !!
Good recipe. I try to use fresh ingredients when possible, so I didn't bother with the baby food. It's easy to puree fresh plums and add a wee bit of flour. Not much. Cornstarch would also work, or tapioca. About 1 Tablespoon or so. Also, red food coloring is never advised. Just leave that unnecessary ingredient out.
Makes nice little gifts or a great bread to have Christmas morning.
A heavenly holiday recipe! Looks, smells, and tastes beautiful.
I can't stop eating this! I highly recommend trying this bread/cake. (It's a cake) I used fresh plums..just put them in the blender. Used 1 1/2 cups of pureed plum and reduced oil to 1/2 cup. For the nuts, I used pecans. Really good! Even my four year old likes it.
this is great as is and as a great base recipe. i have changed the baby food and they all taste great. great recipe!
Really moist and great flavor! I doubled the recipe with no problem. Used macadamias and almonds. All the friends who received as gifts were very pleased!!
