This is pretty good.... My bf just bought a juicer attachment for my KitchenAid. He made fresh squeezed orange juice with it this morning. I thought strawberry-banana bread would be the perfect complement (think strawberry-banana orange juice, but in a "homey," warm and spicy bread... yummy!). I was a bit disappointed (with the bread, that is...). To compensate for the dry texture some reviewer's experienced, I subbed low-fat strawberry-banana yogurt for the oil called for (also to add flavor - or so I thought...). I baked one loaf (halved the recipe) and found that it took much longer than an hour to fully bake, more like 1 hour PLUS 15-20 minutes. After 45 minutes, I covered my loaf with aluminum foil to keep it from browning further (it was just right at that point, so I'm glad I checked). I think my Pampered Chef stoneware loaf pan caused the bottom of my bread to brown more than I'd like.... Overall OK, but the flavors were not dominant enough for me to make again. I even thought the orange zest would give this a nice flavor (apparently too strong as per many reviews - not IMHO), but I barely noticed it. I REALLY noticed the spices and would have noticed the vanilla had I thought to add some. I'll have to see if the flavors improve in a day or two (I REALLY hope they do). Thanks anyways!
