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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
