This is one of the best fruity-bread recipes I have tried. Very light loaf with loads of flavor.
Sorry, this didn't work for me, either. I didn't really taste the applesauce, used 1/2 cup honey & even upped the cinnamon but it really didn't get the good, wholesome taste I was hoping for. Thanks anyway!
This recipe sounded really good, but I have to say I was disappointed in the result. My family didn't care for this bread. Although the texture was great and it was very moist and looked great, the taste was just so so. I had hoped it would have more apple taste. All I could taste was the wheat germ and the whole wheat flour. It had quite a bland taste to me. It needs something, I just can't put my finger on it though. As another reviewer mentioned, it needs more of a spice kick.
Very moist and nice. I followed Ladypit's lead and used part maple syrup in lieu of the honey. I probably used about half honey and half maple syryup, because I was short on both- I went with the 1/3 cup measure, but I felt that I would have liked it to be a little sweeter. So next time, I would use the larger quanity. I was surprised that this did not seem to have nearly any apple-y flavor. The predominant flavor was wheat germ, which was still pretty good. I think that the spices could have been knocked up a little, because I really couldn't taste much over the wheat germ. Not sure why that was so strong. I made it in a loaf pan and it was terrific and moist. Anyway, I think this a great little whole foods recipe- a good one to know that you are serving a nutritious breakfast to your family. Thanks!
Yumm! I love whole foods type recipes that taste so good! I used mostly butter plus a little canola (so I didn't have to open another stick), whole wheat pastry flour, and maple syrup instead of honey and used sweetened dried cranberries. I baked it in a cake pan (my loaf pans were busy) and it was extrememly tasty and moist. A good snack bread!
