  Categories: Polkadot, Lisa, Bread:quick, Low-fat/cal
       Yield: 16 Slices
  
       2 c  Whole wheat flour
       1 ts Baking soda
       1 ts Baking powder
       1 ts Dried grated orange rind OR
       1 tb Fresh grated orange rind
     3/4 c  Prune Butter *
     3/4 c  Orange juice
     1/3 c  Chopped pecans (optional)
  
   Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and orange peel, and
   stir to mix well.  Add the Prune Butter and orange juice, and stir
   just until the dry ingredients are moistened.  Fold in the pecans if
   desired.
   
   Coat an 8-x-4-inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.  SPread the
   mixture evenly in the pan, and bake at 350F for about 40 minutes, or
   just until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf
   comes out clean.
   
   Remove the bread from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes.  Invert the
   loaf onto a wire rack, turn right side up, and cool before slicing and
   serving.

   * Prune Butter is another recipe in this book, and is meant to be used
   as a substitute for all kinds of fat in baked goods.  It is not
   available commerically without added sweetener, but 1 c of it can be
   made in a food processor with 8 oz pitted prunes and 6 tb water or
   fruit juice (I used apple juice in the batch I made for this recipe).
   
   The Chef’s Comments:
   “Last week, I made the Prune Butter, and decided to try it out with
   one of the recipes in the book.  This bread was good the first night,
   but I wrapped it up and tried it again later in the week, and it was
   terrible.  It didn't have the stamina of other quickbreads, I guess.”
