"By substituting applesauce for oil and cutting back on sugar, I lowered the fat and calories in this favorite bread recipe. For a different twist use dates, raisins, and/or prunes with the apricots." --CL Reader

Made as is first time, but it was dry; since then, I've made some subs to make more palatable for my family: one whole egg, 1 C. white wheat or whole wheat flour as part of 2 1/2 c. flour, canola oil for applesauce and buttermilk or light sour cream for milk. More fattening but definitely better flavor!
