MY REVIEW

"This was SO delicious! I made a few modifications (mostly based on what I had on hand) and it still turned out great. I don't have solid shortening, so I used 1/3 C oil; 1/3 cup melted butter. I omitted raisins and added more chopped apples instead. I sub 1/2 cup of white whole wheat flour for 1/2 cup of the regular flour. Added 1 tsp cinnamon to the batter for flavor. I didn't have OJ on hand, so I juiced a fresh organic orange for the 1/4 cup of juice and I added the grated zest of the orange to the batter as well for even more punch. I had walnuts not pecans so I used those. This was quick and easy, and made the house smell wonderful! Thank you !!!"
