Similiar to what I make
I was just checking your recipes and found this to be very similiar to a one I make adding additional ingredients to a popular box mix. With mine I add apple juice and chopped apple which adds more flavor. Once the bread comes out of the oven, you spoon warmed apple jelly over the almonds. Yum!
Needs more liquid!
I took note of previous reviews that stated that the product was overly dry and crumbly, so I added about 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt and a little extra milk (sorry, didn't measure the milk) to make the batter more of a typical quick-bread consistency.
With those changes the recipe is delicious; a definite keeper, and not at all dry.
Extremely dry and fell apart when trying to cut
If you liked this recipe, did you do something different? It tastes good but is extremely dry and crumbled when cutting. Any suggestions as to how to make it moist?
make cutting easier
I make a lot of these breads around holidays for gifts! The trick I use is I alway "freeze" the bread first! Even if I intend to take it to a affair that night,because that makes it easier to cut through the nuts ,etc! It thaws really quick.By the time You arrive for the Goodies to be put out!
i was out of a couple items, but with what i did have to substitute (i used applesauce instead of butter and brown sugar instead of white and added honey roasted peanuts and pecans since i only had about half the cranberries) it came out delicious and smells like strawberry poptarts out of the toaster!
we frosted it with a sour cream and marshmallow cream whipped together after letting it cool 20 minutes in the pan on a wire cooling rack
