To lower the fat, I use 1/3 cup oil and 1/3 cup applesauce*
On Day 1: In glass or plastic bowl, combine 1 cup sugar, 1 cup flour and 1 cup milk. Stir mixture with wooden or plastic spoon (don't use metal spoon or electric mixer). Cover bowl loosely with paper towel, cloth, wax paper or plastic wrap. Keep at room temperature (don't refrigerate).
On Days 6, 7, 8 and 9: Using wooden or plastic spoon, stir mixture once each day.
For the Bread:
In mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Grease 2 9"x5" loaf pans. Bake in 350 degree oven for 40 to 45 minutes.To make muffins, bake in lined cup cake pans for 25 to 30 minutes.
