Apple caramel bread ~ make Friendship Bread with dried apples and caramel instant pudding (makes it like caramel apples).
Last night I tried 3/4 cup white chocolate chips, 3/4 cup macadamia nuts and used cheesecake pudding. Delicious!!!
Substitute 2 tablespoons molasses for equal amount of sugar and add spices to make gingerbread.
throw in a box of chopped dates and a cup of chopped pecans. Then, instead of using two loaf pans, I bake it in a bundt pan.
add 1 cup of drained crushed pineapple, 1 cup shredded coconut and pistachio pudding (instead of vanilla). Very yummy.
Great bread (cake) !!!! My neighbor gave me a starter before leaving for vacation... I've gained 5 lbs. but it's worth every bite. I used 1/2 cup nuts and 1/2 cup white raisins; to die for.
use 1 small box of orange jello, 1 c. drained mandarin oranges
use 1 small box of strawberry jello, 1 c. thawed strawberries. These are very good and I get raving reviews about them .
Use Cheesecake pudding instead of vanilla pudding and add chopped maraschino cherries (about 6 with some juice). This tastes great and looks very festive.
