At Least ONE Promise Kept!

See? I couldn't go back on my word about promises and planning after that discussion I had with myself this morning!

This is a good fruity quickbread, albeit a simple one, with a crunchy crust all the way around from the caramelized brown sugar and fruit juices. There's very little fat, but it adds a ton of moisture from unsweetened, rich apple butter. It's dairy free, and can be made eggless easily - the flaxseed trick or Ener-G work equally well here. I can't wait for apples to be back in our orchards!
