Reviews forApple Raisin Quick Bread
"Hi Roseluongo,bread flour would not be appropriate in this recipe. With it's higher protein, you wouldn't have the same result as using all-purpose.Sue StetzelTaste of Home Magazine"
"Can you substitute bread flour for all purpose flour?"
"This is a very delicious bread. I have made this using craisins and I have also used chopped dates. The clove is wonderful. I have found that I can lower the amount of sugar quite a bit, it is sweet enough for me with 1&3/4 cup of sugar."
"This is delicious! Just be sure to let the bread cool completely before taking out of the pan, or it will fall apart"
