I love my Mom’s A-to-Z Bread, but the original recipe was a bit heavy on sugar and oil for my family. My version lowers the sugar and fat but retains all the flavor folks rave about! —Emily Carney, Grand Ledge, Michigan

"I followed the daughter's version of the recipe, but used 3 cups of flour (don't have whole wheat on hand). I used chopped fresh strawberries, but since I didn't have the entire 2 cups, I added extra applesauce to make up the difference. bread was excellent. I will attempt to make a carrot cake version tomorrow."

"I would like to try this recipe but with the pumpkin. Is it puree pumpkin or packed pumpkin?"
