This is a very delicious loaf of quick bread! I did have to make substitutions on the add ins because I didn't have what was called for in the recipe. I used 1/2 cup of chopped dates, 1/2 cup chopped pecans & 1/2 cup coconut. This bakes up beautifully. It's moist, delicious and not too sweet. I will definately be making this again.

Wonderful recipe! The only things I did different was.... I used butter not margarine and cooked it in 3 little pans for about 40 minutes..

Very easy recipe, unfortunately I didn't have the raisins or the almonds so baked with double the fruit mix. I also needed to cook for another 5-10 minutes longer past the hour - but it was all good. Got rave reviews. Thank you for sharing!

This was delicious, I didn't change a thing. 1 hour at 350 deg was perfect !

this is an awesome recipe. recalculated so that the servings were for 20 and made mini loafs. just enough for 2-3 people without leftovers (per loaf). the taste was excellent. definately will be making this recipe again
