You can use Sunsweet Lighter Bake butter and oil replacement or make the fruit puree fat replacement or just add apple sauce in-place of the oil if you're looking for lighter fare... this is just the original recipe as given by my friend's wife Linda Tate. Being diabetic, I also use the splenda sugar replacement instead of regular granulated.

Thanks to pick a chef I picked this recipe to try~~

My DH office loved this recipe! They did not feel they needed anything on top of them.

I chose to make 4 small loafs ~ which they came out nice & moist inside.
Also this is an easy recipe to make which surprised me.
