    nomnom's Note:

    It's sooo moist - as the title says. The fruit I used were dried papaya, apricots, cranberries, and raisins. Deee-lish! The applesauce makes it moist. However, mine didn't rise that high at all. I did omit the salt and changed the orgional recipe's all-purpose to whole-wheat flour, but I don't think that caused it. It looks like biscotti when sliced. That sounds like a good idea...cut it up at the end and put it back in the oven. I should try that...or just keep as is for a little snack cake. Consider it a delicious fruit cake.

      This is the first thing I have ever baked in my entire life and I absolutely love it. You won't confuse it for a high-fat bread but the taste is very good and the fruit is delicious. It took about 38-40 minutes to bake. I added whole eggs, baking powder and baking soda, salt, real sugar, molasses, and lemon juice. It doesn't rise that much but the smell is wonderful and it tasted so good I just ate three slices fresh from the oven. Next time I make this I am going to add nuts as well. Walnuts would go wonderfully with this. I could see myself making this on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Even with the real sugar (only 34 grams of sugar or 3 tablespoons) and the whole eggs it is very healthy.

      Delicious. Tweeked a bit since had to substitute butter for applesauce, but will make applesauce for next time. Used sultanas and apricots which I soaked in rum - hadn't realised til second read through that the liquid went in the loaf. It didn't rise but now I see I omitted salt which is essential. Will make it again. Added molasses as suggested by Roosie - delicious.

      My husband and I loved this bread! I made it with just craisins because that was all I had on hand. It really was moist and delicious! I also added some walnuts and coconut to use them up and it was great.
