Excellent blend of sweet and tart! I had some warm because I could not wait! As I was getting ready to start making this, I realized that I had no softened margarine (my choice would have been butter). So I replaced the margarine with unsweetened applesauce and it worked fine. I reduced the sugar a bit (as I do with most recipes). I followed a reviewer's suggestion of pouring a glaze of orange juice, confect sugar and vanilla over the bread when it came out of the oven (so cutting back on the sugar in the bread was especially good since I added the glaze). It absorbed well and left a nice sheen on the bread. I chose not to add nuts this time; still great without but will add another time. Also, I don't like over-cooked breads at all; since all ovens run different, I took it out at 40 min, and it was done to my liking. Thanks for this recipe, Carol!
