This is a good way to use up the last of your cottage cheese and is good served with salads or fruit luncheon. The flavor enhances from the peel.

I too made this into muffins and it was great. I omitted the candied peel and instead added raisins to half and dried cranberries to half. I used more nuts and fruit than the recipe called for. It made twelve big regular-sized muffins and probably would have made seven or eight large muffins. We liked them a lot cold or warm. Very hearty and a great way to use up cottage cheese that's getting old. Read More

I made the loaf into fifteen muffins and added cinnamon and nutmeg to the batter as others suggested. Unfortunately I found the muffins to be quite plain so I won't be making them again. Read More

Not bad. I'd like a bit more flavor to this--maybe some cinnamon or nutmeg. This is a heavy dense quick bread. I see why the other two reviewers made it into muffins--they'd be good that way. I don't have mixed fruit peel so I just put in the same amount of lemon peel. It worked just fine although I suppose it would be better with mixed as there'd be more flavors that way. An hour at 350 was perfect. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This was a hit! I swapped out all-purpose flour for whole wheat added a 3rd teaspoon of baking powder (due to the flour change) omitted the salt and in place of the candied mixed fruit peel I just used a teaspoon each of dried orange and lemon peel plus a teaspoon of cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg and a 1/2 cup of raisins. Great stuff! Thanks so much! Read More

Instead of putting mixed fruit peel I put dried raisins and blueberries. When this loaf was ready I cut it in half (between the hot dog style) and spread cream cheese on the insides of the loaf. It tasted soooo good. Read More

Lovely I have made this twice second time using 3/4 cup of sugar instead of a cup and used home made candied orange peel. Delish will definitely make again. Read More

I substituted raisins for the candied mixed fruit peel and baked as muffins but otherwise followed the recipe to the letter. My children really liked these and I did too but... I think they are missing -something perhaps spice. I'm thinking nutmeg or cinnamon maybe chinese five spice. They definitely have a beautiful texture and sponge to them which would be a shame to pass up. I will most likely make these again but add some spice to help them fulfill their potential. Read More

I found the texture to be rather strange - chewy and slightly spongy perhaps due to the extra egg and lack of any fats. The flavour is nice though and it's good warmed up with a bit of butter. Read More
