Step 1

Preheat oven to 170C.

Step 2

Lightly grease and flour a 4 cup loaf pan, shaking out any excess flour.In a bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and allspice.

Step 3

In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix the sugar, eggs, oil and zest on medium speed for 1 minute or until blended and then reduce the mixer to low speed and add the flour mixture in 3 batches, stopping the mixer to scrape down the sides of the bowl between additions and then fold in the carrot, apple and prunes.

Step 4

Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.

Step 5

Evenly sprinkle the walnut pieces on top and bake for 1 hour or until the top of the bread is golden brown and a cake tester inserted into the centre of the bread comes out clean.

Step 6

Cool for 15 minutes and then run a butter knife around the edges to loosen the bread and invert the pan onto a cooling rack and then turn the bread over so the walnut side is up, and let the bread cool completely before serving.
