This is actually the moistest bread I have ever baked. Its near non-fatness is undetectable. I bake gluten free, which can sometimes mean accepting a certain amount of denseness or dryness (and I forgot xanthan gum this time) but it came out absolutely perfect and I couldn't keep my hands off it.

I used regular maple syrup, not sugar-free, and white sugar (dextrose actually) and not brown. I made the applesauce from scratch. I ended up with not quite enough sweet potato so I added more applesauce to compensate. I needed some of the two eggs for another recipe so I whipped these up and then stole some for that, so it wasn't quite 2 eggs either.

I actually like less-sweet things so this recipe was too sweet for me, but most people would find it perfect.

I ended up baking it for almost 90 minutes.
