Crazy Monkey Bread
from True Grits... Tall Tales and Recipes from the New South

1 cup sugar
1-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 cup melted butter or margarine
1 medium banana, mashed
1-1/2 cups chopped peeled fresh fruit
1 cup chopped pecans

Combine the sugar, flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a bowl; mix well. Add the egg and butter, stirring just until moistened. Fold in the banana, fresh fruit and pecans. Spoon into two 5x9-inch loaf pans sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until the loaves test done. Cool in the pans for 15 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to
cool completely.

Note: Any combination of ripe, non-citrus fresh fruit may be used. Try one of these combinations: 1 Granny Smith apple and 2 pears; 1 banana and 2 to 3 plums; 1 peach, 1 apple and 1 pear. Extremely juicy fruit should be drained.
