Hawaiian Bread

Us Minnesotans (make sure you emphasize that long “o” so you sound local) have been completely spoiled this summer with temps in the 70s and no humidity. All of that changed this week and I’m grumpy because of it!  I hate being hot, sticky and sweaty but I love being outside so when I have to choose, my air-conditioned home will always win. My poor gardens haven’t seen me any longer than it takes to refresh them with some cool water. Luckily for me, this heat will only last a few weeks at best and then it will begin cooling off again because fall hits quite early around here.

When it is hot, I can’t stand to turn on the oven or really even do much cooking at the stove. I live in a 100+ year old house and my A/C has a hard enough time keeping us cool without adding to it’s burden. I mostly grill our meals and use my handy bread machine.  Granted, it only makes one loaf at a time which barely lasts us one meal, but I can’t beat the convenience or it’s minimal heat output!  It has been quite awhile since I made this recipe but boy is it yummy! The added fruit gives it such a nice sweetness without any chunks in your finished loaf. I’m sure it will make an appearance once again this week since the forecast looks miserable.
