11.18.03 Edible fruitcake! Ha! Seriously, it's good! Maybe I'll even try a little pineapple & less oil next time. It's very good. I just can't leave a good recipe well enough alone. :D The only changes I made are substituting an additional 1/4c graham crumbs & 1/4c oats for the nuts due to allergy. 'Didn't have the orange rind either. Oh, well. :) A third cup oil isn't too much, but a quarter cup is fine as well. 12.12 Double recipe. 'Tried adding a can of crushed pineapple & while it wasn't bad, it wasn't better. I drained it & added enough orange juice to equal a cup. It just lessened the orange flavor, but really didn't add any pineapple flavor - even the pineapple pieces. Strange, but true! :D 'Stick with the original - for now. I'm thinking of trying blueberries or half blue, half cran.1/2012: Tried frozen homegrown (sweet) blueberries & notsogood. This bread needs a stronger flavored fruit. I couldn't find any cranberries, even frozen, so used all blueberries - & more than it states. Mostly tasted the orange & it should be an afterthought, not first impression. 'Stickin' w cranberries! Oh, I forgot to tell ya there's NO need to chop those berries. What a waste of time. As you slice the bread ... voila! 12/12/12 Tried the 1c confec, 2T oj, 1t vanilla glaze poked & poured while hot in pan. After 10, removed. More moist & sweet, but not a big flavorchanger. Good either way. Tried for dbl recipe, 3/4c oats&no addt'l gc for nuts. No dryness problem :)
