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.

Good luck!
