This is definitely a five star recipe with a couple of changes. I added a tsp of cinnamon a tsp of orange extract used 1/2 cup butter and 3/4 cup applesauce. The texture is fabulous and the flavor is out of this world. Next time I make it and I will make it again I will use brown sugar instead of white sugar.
I like the concept of using applesauce instead of oil. I would add extra cinnamon and perhaps vanilla or orange extract to enhance the flavor of this bread. Perhaps add more butter and use only 1/2 cup of applesauce.
I baked this as muffins dividing the batter between 12 standard greased muffin cups. Baked for bout 25 minutes and that worked well. I think it needed more orange flavor for our taste but otherwise a good recipe.
I would have liked this better with more butter and less applesauce. It came out fine though if a bit more dense than I expected. That's not necessarily a bad thing just not exactly what I expected given the amount of baking powder. This recipe made 12 large muffins for me 23 minutes at 350. Thanks for sharing!
I really liked the idea of using a minimal amount of fat in this recipe. It was tasty and not too sweet. Next time I'll add some toasted pecans or walnuts. A great little breakfast bread that will be perfect with my morning coffee!
I've made it and am bringing it to work for a bake sale. I haven't tried it yet but I did make a couple of small tweaks. I added mixed peel (the kind you make fruit cake with) instead of just grated orange peel and I glazed the whole thing with orange blossom flavored icing. I'll post an update and a picture once I get it to work and get feedback.:-)
This is a really nice bread. Very well balanced and tasty. Perfect for the holidays. I added an extra teaspoon of orange extract and half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder. I'm sure I'll bake it again in the future.
I felt the recipe lacked flavour as it is. I made it a second time and added 1 tsp of cinnamon increased the Orange rind added 1 tsp of vanilla a pinch of salt and some walnuts. Because I only added 1/2 cup of applesauce the batter was to dry and added 1/2 cup of milk both times I made this loaf. I substituted chopped dates for the cranberries the second time simply because I didn't have any dried cranberries. I liked the dates for a change. With the changes I made I really liked the loaf.
