      I made this with macadamia nuts because that's what I had on hand. This was fabulous. The bread reminded me of what used to be served at Todd's in Houston. I also used unsweetened applesauce and it was plenty sweet.

      I haven't made this particular recipe yet but it is much like my favorite one that I have lost. It is what I always made instead of fruitcake. It was always very well liked. I am so glad to have found this one.
