I save time, use less oil and have moister results when I add jars of baby food fruit to my quick breads. This recipe is a big help if company is coming and you want to make bread for dinner or to have with coffee. —JoAnn Lee of Accord, New York

"Good and moist. Used mostly whole wheat flour and also cut down sugar as recommended. Will make again."

"Easy to make and delicious. Followed reviewer?s suggestion, I used ½ cup apple sauce and less sugar. Friends and family loved it and asked for more. It?s a keeper."

"Love the topping! Used coconut butter for top instead of butter and flax meal to replace the egg. Applesauce really makes it moist. My husband ate 3/4 of it throughout the morning! I used 1 1/2 cup oat flour, 1/2 cup pastry flour, and 1 cup brown rice flour. I doubled the recipe but still only added the 1 cup sugar. It didn't need any more than that. :)"

"I couldn't find the diced apples baby food so I used 1/2 c lite apple pie filling instead. It turned out very moist. I love the topping, adds extra special goodness to an already delicious bread."
