Moist, sweet, and oh so comforting! This Prune Bread is perfect for breakfast or dessert!
There are two paintings I have hanging in my work space that remind me of autumn in the country with their golden hues of burnt sienna and ochre, framed in brushed gilt.
If I had to liken autumn in New York to a specific scene, it would be these paintings. I’ve always admired them and the warmth they bring to the space.
As the nights grow longer and cooler, and the mornings are now veiled in the shadows of the early hour, we begin to feel that seasonal shift. Yes, friends, fall is on its way and for some of us, it is already here.
This Prune Bread has long been a favorite of mine. It is hearty and just sweet enough without being too heavy, making it perfect for breakfast with cream cheese and jam alongside a hot cup of coffee. It can also be served with a dollop of fresh whipped cream and enjoy in the evening for dessert. Whichever way you prefer, I know you will love it!
When I recreated this recipe, I decided to add just a sprinkle of white chocolate and walnuts for added texture to the bits of sweet prunes. Finish it off with a generous sprinkle of raw sugar before baking for a simple sugar crust in the end.
