    Good morning Sweetie, I truly appreciate the post. I have the bowl method and used to have a recipe using a bag and lost it somewhere between Arkansas and here in Ca. You have my 5. Have a great day...Cheryl

    I agree neldacot, 1/2 cup applesauce 1/2 cup of oil instead of the 1 cup oil makes for a very moist and delicious loaf.

    Love this recipe! I added 1/2 cup of apple sauce and 1/2 cup of oil. I did try it with a banana pudding. It came out great. Thanks for the starter recipe, I have made so much bread that now I don't have to keep a starter.
