The list of ingredients for this recipe is very good and produces a very nice tasting quick bread that we all enjoyed. However , I would not recommend following the directions by beating all the ingredients together in a bowl for 5 minutes with an electric mixer. Excessive mixing will cause the overdevelopment of gluten and make the bread tough instead of tender.. INSTEAD… Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ones (Only when each bowl of ingredients is mixed thoroughly ) and fold them together gently until just combined. Do this part by hand rather than with a mixer. The end result will be a nice sweet, tender quick bread. THX


The flavor was nice, but it was on the dry side. I used 1/2 t. vanilla extract and 1/2 t. lemon extract instead of 1 full t. of vanilla. I sure hope that didn't affect the moistness of the bread.


This recipe can be used for muffins - bake about 23 minutes. They turned out very moist and so easy. I just threw everything together, except poppy seeds, in a medium bowl and blended. I added 1/4 teaspoon almond extract, reduced oil to 3/4 cup, and added 3/4 cup apple sauce. Thanks for the recipe!!
