DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Combine wet ingredients: starter, egg, oil, applesauce, milk or cream, vanilla, and molasses. Stir well.
  • Combine dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, spices, and pudding mix in a separate bowl. Whisk until well-combined.
  • Add dry mix gradually to wet mix, and stir until barely combined. Stir in candied peel if using.
  • Spread in greased loaf pan.
  • Bake (at 325 degrees) approximately one hour. Check it at fifty minutes to determine baking time for your oven!
  • Remove from oven and cool on a rack. When BARELY warm to the touch, spread cream cheese frosting over top of loaf. I like runny, glazey, drippy frosting--if you like it thicker, you'll need more frosting and a light hand to keep from tearing pieces off the top of this tender loaf!
