Too oily

by S. S , on Nov. 2009

Though the bread was tasty, I found the texture of the bread too oily. I would cut the oil in half and replace with water or other liquid but not fat.

Altered recipe

by G. Gabrielle , Philadelphia, PA on Dec. 2008

I made this recipe using only one teaspoon of salt instead of 1 and a half teaspoons. Also I used only 1/2 cup of oil instead of 1 cup, and 1 cup of light brown sugar with 1 cup regular sugar, added a capful of vanilla too. I agree that one cup of cranberries isn't enough, so I added a 1/2 cup more. Instead of using apple juice I used a mixture of pear and cranberry juices. Tweaking the recipe this way gave it more of a bread feel, and an adult taste. My coworkers loved it!

Yummy...

by J. JEANNE , BROKEN ARROW, OK on Nov. 2007

I made this for my daughters kindergarten Thanksgiving feast at school. They are so good. Next time I am going to add more berries, 1 cup of fresh berries doesn't go far when you make this as muffins. But, the pumpkin taste is wonderful. This recipe is replacing the family recipe I have been making for years. Yummy....
