This delectable pumpkin and fruit loaf will be the hit of any fall festival and holiday gathering. While it may appear to be a typical pumpkin bread, the first slice reveals the colorful additions of glace colored pineapple wedges, glace diced orange peel, and golden raisins. Nearly failsafe, this is a great recipe to try if you’ve never made a yeasted bread, but is also perfect for bakers of all experience levels.
Divide dough into 2 equal parts. Form dough into oval loaves and place in 2 greased loaf pans, 8 1/4 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches. Let rise, covered, in warm place until loaves are double in size, about 30 minutes. Bake in preheated 350-degree oven until loaves are a deep golden color and sound hollow when tapped, 35 to 45 minutes. Remove from pans and cool on wire rack.
Makes 2 loaves.
