Sorry for the low rating but I am sure that some brand name recipes are not tested very well. This just does not taste like Irish soda bread - applesauce always needs to have some spices. Also, too much baking soda. One of those recipes I would play with but it does have potential. I think I would change the name to something else then it would not be misleading. It certainly is a new twist on soda bread and one I will not ignore.
