Jackfruit BreadThis month’s #BreadBakers challenge was to use no refined sugar hosted by Mayuri. I decided to use honey. This is a simple tea bread that is perfect with your morning cup of java.

The original intention was to use banana, but then a late night mishap had me searching the house for what other fruit I could use instead. I had a container of jackfruit I had purchased in Chinatown…perfect! Cleaning jackfruit is a laborious task, but if you live near a Chinatown you can usually purchase containers already cleaned and sometimes deseeded for you. Ah…convenience. If you’ve never tasted jackfruit before, it has a taste similar to mango.
