This loaf is so flavorful! I doubled the recipe as I wanted two loaves (I used loaf pans) and I only used half of the raisins and half of the orange rind that was called for. As I always tend to try and cut sugar and fat where ever possible, I used half Splenda and half brown sugar and I also cut the butter amount in half and substituted apple sauce. It is a very easy recipe to follow and took exactly 50 minutes in the oven. My toddler gobbled up her slice very quickly! Delicious! Thank you for sharing your grandmother's recipe.
