Helpful hints

    • One medium apple yeilds approximately 1 cup.
    • Make several loaves and freeze one for later.
    • Use pasteurized, liquid egg whites instead of fresh egg whites if desired. 1/3 cup of All Whites® brand 100% liquid egg whites replaces 2 egg whites.

Has anyone tried splitting into muffin portions? If so how long did you bake them? Also how could I figure out the nutrient facts for a different size serving. Thanks in advance for any help. Dietitian comment: To figure out the nutrition content of a different portion take the current nutrients per serving and multiply by 10. Next divide this number by the new serving size.

I just made this and I'm confused by the glaze. The recipe says 1/2 cup confectioners sugar with 6 Tablespoons water, which I did and it was watery-thin! I tried it again using half the water and it was still thin. I drizzled it over but it ran down the sides and was a complete mess. I hope it doesn't just soak the bread. Did I do something wrong? Was I supposed to heat the glaze?
