  2. Sounds like a great recipe. Did you come up with this yourself or was this an adaptation from another recipe? Do the prunes serve as a sweetner? I tried a recipe many years ago that used prunes to replace sugar.
    Look forward to your response.

  3. Most of the recipes I create by myself.This the one of them. The loaves were sweet but I believe it was the Kamut which gave them sweetness.I had some prunes in my fridge so I added them to the soaker.I avoid sugar but I really enjoy sweetness of dried fruit in my breads.
