"This is really a cross between cake and a bread. Serving it warm with butter or a cream cheese is ideal. It's really good!" — PAMSTER2

2 1/2 cups
1 (3.5 ounce) package
maraschino cherries, chopped
Today I made this for the second time. I added 1/4 cup brown sugar and doubled the cinnamon. Very yummy. Mine turned out to be a quick bread texture and flavor. I baked it for exactly 60 minutes. Thanks,Pam.PS It seemed to have more flavor the second time around. I believe a teaspoon of vanilla or 1/2t of orange extract would really bring out the flavor in this wonderfully textured bread.
This was good I thought, but not great. I followed the suggesion of another reviewer and whirled the coconut in the food processor, and thought that was a good idea - I also would not have liked the long strands of coconut. Also left out the cherries. Also used half applesauce and half oil. Perhaps it will taste better today, as these breads often do the day after baking.
Very good. I substituted 1/2 the oil with apple sauce and toasted pecans for the walnuts. I did not have any cherries. For anyone that does not have a scale 3.5 oz of coconut is aprox. 1 1/2 cups. I made it in my bread machine and topped it with orange cream cheese frosting (from this site). Yummy!
very good as muffins (bake for 15-20 min at 350) topped with homemade cream cheese frosting. Next time I would add more carrots and 1 1/2 c coconut, and more cinnamon
I baked this bread after my pediatrician suggested making these types of breads (zucchini, carrot) for breakfast to try and sneak some veggies into my toddler's diet. The whole family loved it! I substituted 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour for 1 1/4 cups of the all purpose flour, cut down the coconut to only 1 cup (many people said 1 1/2 cups was way too much) and left out the cherries and it tasted great. I made sure to use my food processor to basically MINCE the carrot, coconut, walnuts and raisins because I knew if I left them as instructed (shredded/chopped) my toddler would refuse to eat it with so many conflicting textures. It was a great call - seemed to meld the flavors even better and he gobbled it up. I HIGHLY recommend this bread to any Mom trying to be "deceptively delicious" and sneak veggies into their kids diet:)
I doubled this recipe because it sounded so good, and I am glad I did. It looks attractive and the taste is wonderful. I am guessing it gets better after sitting a day, but that won't happen around here!
This was a great recipe. I substituted 3/4 cup of the all-purpose flour for whole wheat flour and used 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar. I didn't have applesauce so I used the full amount of oil. I also added a tsp of vanilla. Turned out super moist and delicious! I served it with the Cream Cheese Frosting II (recipe on this site). Got rave reviews!
made this and it was great! im about to make a 2nd batch. i did use half apple sauce though
