Thanks for a wonderful recipe. I have made it twice for work. This last time people could not stop raving about how good it was. It was so easy to mix up and pop in the oven, it practically makes itself. Great use of the overstock of raisins I had. I ran out of applesauce, so I ran some apple pie filling through the blender and it worked just as well.

After all the great reviews, I thought I would give this a try. Sadly, it was dry as another described even tough I pulled it from te oven early. I should have paid closer attention to the fat replacement using applesauce. It definitely needed s ome more fat content to add moisture without gumminess. Will not make again though the potential is there with some changes.

This bread was great. It was quick and easy. I was concered that the bread would turn out crumbly because of other reviews. I planed on using two eggs, but forgot and only used one. I am glad I forgot. The bread did not need it. It was not crumbly at all. I did increase the cinnamon to 1 tsp. I also used brown sugar instead of white sugar.

Got several compliments with this bread, tho I changed it a little. Used Craisins (sweetened, dried cranberries) in place of raisins. Only had sweetened applesauce on hand, so cut the sugar a bit, though the final product could have used the extra sugar, in my opinion. Good bread; very dense and a little crumbly.

A great bread in a short time. A slice of this hearty bread and some yogurt makes a quick, healthy breakfast. I do believe I'm addicted to this bread.

I increased the cinnamon to 1 tsp and added another egg to bind the ingredients so the bread wouldn't crumble, and it held together very nicely. Just the right amount of sugar as I'm not fond of very sweet things. Thanks for the very nice recipe.

This was good, and definitely easy. It came in handy when some relatives dropped by with little notice and I needed something for them to eat for breakfast. I agree with other reviewers that it didn't hold together well and was rather crumbly. I left out the nuts and added extra raisins. I drizzled a thin cream cheese frosting/glaze over it for a little extra sweetness. If I make this again I will probably put a streusel topping on it to make it more like a coffee cake.

This bread was great! My boyfriend took it to work with him and everyone loved it. They all said it was awesome! I even made it with fat free butter, but I don't think they knew that.
