I've been making this recipe for ions now. It was a collaboration between myself and a friend about 25 years ago. I haven't found one I like better. I hope you will agree. These loaves also freeze very well. Note: You could try using applesauce for some or all of the oil in order to reduce the fat content. However....I haven't tried it myself.
