This is a good way to use up the last of your cottage cheese and is good served with salads or fruit luncheon. The flavor enhances from the peel.

I too made this into muffins, and it was great. I omitted the candied peel and instead added raisins to half and dried cranberries to half. I used more nuts and fruit than the recipe called for. It made twelve big regular-sized muffins and probably would have made seven or eight large muffins. We liked them a lot, cold or warm. Very hearty and a great way to use up cottage cheese that's getting old.

Another winner, Carol! I made 12 muffins out of this, six with raisins. I baked them for 35 minutes. Sweet and yummy.

Not bad. I'd like a bit more flavor to this--maybe some cinnamon, or nutmeg. This is a heavy, dense quick bread. I see why the other two reviewers made it into muffins--they'd be good that way. I don't have mixed fruit peel, so I just put in the same amount of lemon peel. It worked just fine, although I suppose it would be better with mixed, as there'd be more flavors that way. An hour at 350 was perfect. Thanks for the recipe.
