The days are just flying by, aren’t they? It might be because I spent practically the entire month either in a lack of sleep induce zombie state or staring at a sweet sleeping newborn. Either way, I barely squeaked this month’s Sourdough Surprises challenge in! As in, I made them yesterday afternoon.
I happened to have a plethora of plums sitting around and, thinking of one of my favorite cakes, decided to incorporate them into my quick bread. I don’t often make quick bread (I am more of a muffin girl – I always, always under bake my quick breads!) This bread turned out great, although a bit moist from the 4 whole plums I jammed into this bread. But it sure was delicious!
Please check out all the other amazing sourdough quick breads and muffins that we made this month! And don’t forget to check by Sourdough Surprises in a few days to see what we will be making next! And heck, why don’t you join us?!
