Cornmeal and Fruit Loaf-Tuesdays with Dorie

Nice pick from Caitlin who blogs at The Engineer Baker. A superb breakfast or tea bread redolent with fresh and dried apples its earthiness from stone ground yellow cornmeal. I added crumbled crisp bacon as mentioned in the playing around side note, decreasing the sugar to 3 tablespoons and adding coarse ground pepper and a pinch of nutmeg.  I think it would be very nice served toasted with a fried or poached egg perched atop. Your bacon, eggs and fruit all in one! Caitlin has the recipe on her blog or you can find it on page 43 of Baking From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan, so give it a try! Also, visit the TWD Blogroll see other variations.
