3.5 stars, but I don't want to bring the overall rating down, so I'm putting it in as 4 stars. I did not add nuts to the recipe, and used fresh fruit that i weighed out and also drained after putting them through a rough chop in the food processor. First of all, the loaf (pyrex container with no change in temperature) took longer to bake than the stated baking time. But when it is done, it starts crisping up rather quickly, so you have to carefully watch it at that point. I read somewhere that you should take it out of the loaf pan as soon as it is cool. I did, and it broke. After being left overnight, I noticed that the loaf had a more solid feel to it. So next time I will wait a little longer before flipping it out. As for the taste, I was just not that impressed. Neither the pineapple nor the strawberry really shined through. It was still pleasant to eat, and if I had these ingredients to use up in the future, I might pull this recipe out again. Bottom line, it was simple and fun to make, and the result was a simple, but pleasant tasting loaf. I also used half the recipe to make muffins, and at 350, that took just a little under 20min in my oven.
