About this recipe: This moist, easy-to-make fruit loaf is a lovely food gift for neighbours or friends at Christmas time.
Wonderful bread that's bursting with a delicious combination of fruits and nuts! I cut back on the applesauce a bit and added some fresh chopped apples. I also a struesel topping before popping it into the oven. I baked this in a 9x5 baking dish and it was done in about an hour. It smelled divine and tasted fabulous! - 11 Nov 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made muffins out of this recipe. I ground my oats down in my mini food processor for a finer texture. We don't care for walnuts so I used chopped pecans in it's place. I also soaked my raisins in unsweetened, hot chai for 20 minutes before adding them to the muffin batter. (I assumed that black raisins were regular raisins, mine were just organic) SUPER moist, awesome texture and really flavorful. I got 12 largish muffins out of one recipe--350* for 20 minutes and they were perfect. I think these would be good with chopped apples thrown in and maybe a half teaspoon of nutmeg, too. I'll make this again. - 18 Nov 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect. Be sure your loaf pan is big enough as this makes a BIG loaf! Very moist; perfect with a little cream cheese on top. Will make again for sure. - 10 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
