Not a favorite! Too dense and bland. If I make this again, which I doubt, I will use brown sugar.

I love this recipe and have made it several times, it's my go-to zuke bread. I use half oil and half applesauce and cut the sugar as well. I used to have issues with it sticking to the pans, so now I spray it with Bakers Joy or put parchment in the pan bottoms, which works like a charm. This makes a beautiful crusty bread.

I made several small loaves today to give to neighbors as Christmas gifts. Luckily I tasted it a slice first. The taste was bland. I was embarrassed to give them as gifts. Also, it took longer to bake than the recipe said.I will not be making this again.
