I like to think of this as guilt bread. I had some about two years ago
and have refused more ever since. Of course, I was offended on principle
that people were calling it Amish, when the recipe (my recipe at least)
calls for a package of instant pudding. OK, I'm Mennonite, and I'm
touchy about people exploiting the Amish.
Anyway, I made it with applesauce (though I think only 3/4 C.) and it was
OK, though a little gummy. Basically, you can adapt it as you would a
normal quick bread. I even retyped the instructions that came with the
bread so that I wouldn't be passing on that high fat recipe.
