Mary omits the cloves.

Applesauce is completely optional. Should you prefer a softer & sweeter loaf, give it a try.

Conversely, reduce the sugar by about half if you’ve accustomed yourself to a keto-oid diet; the raisins carry enough sweetness for us. You can use brown sugar if you like.

  1. a recipe is just where you start …

    Indeed it is but you have far more leeway when you are making soup than when you are baking. Baking is chemistry and wandering too far from recipe proportions will produce a flat cookie rather than a lofty loaf. Voice of experience.

    1. Doubling the baking powder definitely helps boost the applesauce version!

      Ya gotta make one “original” before carefully exploring the surrounding solution space …

  2. I’ve read that some of the outrageous prices are when a vendor doesn’t have the item in stock, but wants to keep the listing open for when they actually do have it.

    OTOH, some vendors seem to specialize in slightly obscure or out-of-print books at absurd prices. I’m trying to keep my reading purchases limited to eBook versions with a hard limit of $11 for an eBook, and lots of resistance above $7 (note to self, time to update the Kindle-for-PC backup stash). Can’t say I’m thrilled with the file obscuring/encryption though.

    1. And, should someone buy it, the seller can afford next-day shipping from whoever has a copy.

      There’s a sucker born every minute, so I’m told, but that victim would have soaked up all the sucker-hood for a day in both directions …

  3. Was Mary’s recipe printed on a dot matrix printer? It has that old-school (retro-cool?) look to it that I remember from my essay-writing college days…
