  1. I don't mean to be negative but this recipe is awful and I can't recommend it. I followed the instructions exactly and after 40 minutes in the oven, the bread isn't just moist, it's mushy. Try at your own risk.
  2. I did make a few changes (almost forgot the eggs!) Used kefir for yogurt, so increased sugar to 1 cup. Used 1 1/2 C freshly ground w.w. pastry flour, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp salt. I had to bake it for 40 minutes and it was still almost too wet underneath. I would leave out the oil and increase my flour to 2 cups next time. Maybe only 1 egg would help too. My 6 yo and I both enjoyed the flavor though. Will try again with the changes.
  3. I doubled the recipe, used 3/4 sugar for the entire doubled recipe, and added raisins and walnuts. Moist and delicious!!
  4. We loved it. Very very moist. I used fat free yogurt and it was enjoyed very much for breakfast as well as lunchbox treats.
  5. This was tasty and my toddler loved it, but it took a lot longer to bake than the instructions. I baked for 30 minutes in an electric oven and the toothpick came out clean but once I cut it, parts were still uncooked. I will cook longer next time. Super tasty though!
