Fruit And Nut Breakfast Bread / Loaf

Written By Srimathi Mani on Thursday, May 9, 2013 | 10:00 AM

I like watching cooking channel shows as they have experts from a variety of cuisines and countries showing us their skills. I find it very relaxing and sometimes, I do try out some of the recipes that I find interesting. One such show is Bill's Food which transports you to a beach town in Australia and the  ocean clippings makes me think of the lovely beaches of San Diego. Anyways, I found the fruit and nut bread very interesting and made notes of the recipe. Yesterday, I baked the dry fruit and nut loaf as he calls it. I kind of manipulated with some ingredients to suit what I could find in my pantry. I must acknowledge that it is the best bread that I have baked so far. I am super elated because, I have baked some breads in the past, but this is my best so far in the adventures of baking bread.

  7. A local bakery used to make a fruit and nut loaf with cardamom that was amazing. they've stopped making it, so I googled "fruit and nut, cardamom" and this came up. It looks perfect! Can't wait to make it
