Recipe by James Collier for California Prunes

Sorry, sourdough. This California Prune Bread is where it’s at. Subtly sweet, this lovely loaf works equally well for breakfast or dessert. Don’t let the resting time scare you off. We promise it’s well worth the wait. You can smear a thick slab of this prune bread with butter of course, but we suggest using a slice or two for ricotta toast too.

Try it with your favorite buttery pie crust or store-bought to save some time – either way, we’re pretty sure you won’t go back to the box. And you might not want to share with the kids.
