Paula, please continue your same way of cooking that you have shared with all of your fans for years. People need to know no one eats a steady diet of fat and butter but it is good to eat when you feel you need it. I have so many recipes of yours and I just keep right on writing them down. So please continue to make your good food and also you can throw in a healthy one every now and then. Just remember you are not making anyone read or prepare your meals. We are choosing it on our own. So from one southern lady to another keep right on cookin. Jackie Brainard Maumee, Ohio

I made this bread for my Mother and it tasted great! I would definitely use sweetened applesauce, though! Submitted by: Dreaming of being in N.O.L.A. ...

I found this recipe very dry and just plain as far as flavor. Brought it to work and all tasters said the same thing...very bland. Will never make it again.

Thank you Paula Deen --I love all your recipes and enjoy all Southern cooking

I have to say that this bread has absolutely no flavor. Will try wrapping in foil like another reviewer said to see if this helps. I used unsweetened applesauce, next time will try sweetened.

I loved this bread! When I was preparing it, I did worry about the batter appearing so thick, so like the other reviewer, I added a 1/4 cup more of applesauce. After the bread came out of the oven, it tasted a little bland, so I wrapped it in tin foil. When I tried it the next day, the steam from the wrapped hot bread had made the bread so moist and and flavorful!!! I'm so glad I gave it another try. I will definitely bake this again!!

I love this recipe.. Way to go Paula on making a very easy, delicious bread. I found by adding a 1/4 c extra of the applesauce that it was a very moist. I omited the raisins and allspice and add a little pumkin pie spice and extra of the cinnamon. When I served it. I served it warm with apple butter spread across the top of it. It was very delicious this way.

I followed the recipe to the letter but it turned out dry and crumbly. The texture may improve with wrapping in foil and refrigerating for a few days, we'll see. I wonder if using only one egg would make the bread not so cake-like? It struck me when I was mixin up the batter that the two eggs made the butter/sugar mixture way too thin. The ratio of butter/sugar/flour/eggs just doesn't seem right. It tasted great and I like that there is not much sugar used, since I am diabetic. Otherwise, Paula, everything has been great, and I love your show!

I tried this and it was just waaaaay too dry for some reason?? I soaked my raisins in water first to keep them moist but just dissapointed in the dry cake.
