I too made this into muffins, and it was great. I omitted the candied peel and instead added raisins to half and dried cranberries to half. I used more nuts and fruit than the recipe called for. It made twelve big regular-sized muffins and probably would have made seven or eight large muffins. We liked them a lot, cold or warm. Very hearty and a great way to use up cottage cheese that's getting old.

I made the loaf into fifteen muffins and added cinnamon and nutmeg to the batter as others suggested. Unfortunately, I found the muffins to be quite plain, so I won't be making them again.

Another winner, Carol! I made 12 muffins out of this, six with raisins. I baked them for 35 minutes. Sweet and yummy.

Not bad. I'd like a bit more flavor to this--maybe some cinnamon, or nutmeg. This is a heavy, dense quick bread. I see why the other two reviewers made it into muffins--they'd be good that way. I don't have mixed fruit peel, so I just put in the same amount of lemon peel. It worked just fine, although I suppose it would be better with mixed, as there'd be more flavors that way. An hour at 350 was perfect. Thanks for the recipe.

This was a hit! I swapped out all-purpose flour for whole wheat, added a 3rd teaspoon of baking powder (due to the flour change), omitted the salt, and in place of the candied mixed fruit peel I just used a teaspoon each of dried orange and lemon peel, plus a teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg, and a 1/2 cup of raisins. Great stuff! Thanks so much!

Instead of putting mixed fruit peel, I put dried raisins and blueberries. When this loaf was ready, I cut it in half (between the hot dog style) and spread cream cheese on the insides of the loaf. It tasted soooo good.

I substituted raisins for the candied mixed fruit peel and baked as muffins, but otherwise followed the recipe to the letter. My children really liked these and I did too, but... I think they are missing -something, perhaps spice. I'm thinking nutmeg or cinnamon, maybe chinese five spice. They definitely have a beautiful texture and sponge to them which would be a shame to pass up. I will most likely make these again, but add some spice to help them fulfill their potential.
