Hi @LilBitMissty!

Thanks for sharing another of you goodies!  I have some unsweetened applesauce.  For this recipe, would I use the same 1 cup of sugar or would I need to add more to compensate for it being unsweetene?

You  all are very welcome for the post!

 

@Jannabelle...Hi dear. Let me know how it goes.

 

@vabreeze... Hi sweetie. It should be fine without adding extra sugar. My favorite is to eat it warm with butter.  Let me know if you make it. Good to "see" you dear.

@LilBitMissty, I made this quick bread today and it's delicious! Both hubby and I really like it - very moist and just enough spices for a great flavor. Thanks for posting it!

@LilBitMissty Made your recipe 2 days ago and it was delicious.  Very moist, very tasty.  I know I used the right size loaf pan, but did have a problem with some of the batter overflowing.  No big deal though.  I just let the "drippings" bake and was able to wipe it off the oven floor.  Thanks for posting.  

 

If I may ask one question -- I always have a problem making toppings for these types of breads.  Is the butter suppose to be melted (which I did) or softened and with the addition of the other ingredients, make a crumbly topping.  Hope I explained that right.

@vabreeze   I also used unsweetened applesauce and didn't add the full cup of sugar -- just a tad less than 1 cup.  DH said it was sweet enough.
