Very disappointed in this bread. Everyone was saying put applesauce in instead of shortening, so I used both. Went over a bit with the applesauce, but pretty much equaled 1/2 cup. Didn't have nuts, but used everything else. Filled one bread pan to the brim, I should have used 2 smaller pans. Did not bake in 55 minutes. Had to cover the top after over an hour of baking because inside was still raw. I lost track of how long I baked it, 1 & 1/2 hours? When the inside FINALLY cooked, I took it out, let it cool. It was soooo bland. It needed more salt, it has not much taste at all. It had not much flavor at all, all I could taste was the banana! The blueberries don't even taste like blueberries, they might as well have been less expensive raisins because the banana dominated. Putting salted butter on it helped a lot, it was just that bland. Also, the quick oatmeal had some that didn't soften, so they were like little 'watch out for your dental work' rocks! I don't know what I did that was so different coming out in my oven than the stellar reviews I read on here, but it was a waste of ingredients. Especially very expensive blueberries. Sorry, never again. Maybe I shouldn't have used applesauce and shortening... couldn't taste the applesauce at all, and even after all that cooking time, it was STILL a little raw inside! Very disappointed...:(
