About this recipe: This is a lovely, moist tea time bread made with wholemeal flour, ground ginger, coriander and cinnamon. It works with orange or apricot juice too.
This was not the moist delicious loaf it was touted as. In fact it was so dry we had to eat it with loads of butter spread on top. Very disappointing. - 27 Jan 2011
I did a bit of substituting; OJ for the pineapple juice and dried pineapple, mango and papaya for the apricots - I think you could probably substitute any juice and any dried fruit. I also changed the flours a bit, adding more white and less whole wheat, since I know my family prefers that. It turned out very well, except that I will add a 1/2 tsp. of salt next time I make it. A bit of butter makes up for the lack of salt, and it freezes well. The coriander sounded a bit odd to me at first, but it goes well with the ginger and cinnamon. - 06 Jun 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a delightful bread. It's not very sweet as you might expect of a fruit bread, but has a nice balanced, enjoyable flavor. We make it over and over. - 09 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
