PRODUCT: Fruit Bread In Red, White & Blue

Banana bread is one of our favorite comfort foods. It belongs in a category called fruit bread, which includes blueberry bread, zucchini bread and other dense, cake-like products baked in loaf pans.

The density enables fruit bread to be used as sandwich bread—mascarpone, cream cheese or nutted cream cheese is an excellent partner (serve fingers or triangles at brunch, at tea or for snacks). The great chef Larry Forgione uses banana bread, chocolate bread and other flavors to make memorable ice cream sandwiches.

St. Lucia Bread Company, an artisan bakery in Dallas, ships its fruit breads nationwide in keepsake tins. They’re a welcome gift—and the red, white and blue tin (the Texas flag) makes a perfect thank-you for your July 4th hosts. There’s also a fruit bread-of-the-month club, a gift that keeps on giving.

There are seven flavors of fruit bread plus seasonal specialties, which can be had with or without nuts. Take a bite of Apple Cinnamon, Banana, Blueberry, Chocolate, Cranberry, Pear or Pumpkin Bread.

Chocolate is a fruit? Well, we can stretch that: Chocolate is made from the seeds of the fruit of the cacao tree. (Learn about chocolate production.)
