The applesauce in the recipe is NOT a low fat substitute. However you may eliminate it and substitute butter, margarine, or baby food plums-- or even fresh plum or pear puree. The applesauce or plums impart a nice highlight to the flavor. I only made the bread once, and used pureed Japanese Satsuma plums in the recipe, as I have trees in my yard. Bread texture should not be affected by which ever you choose to use. I also loaded up on the port...to almost 1/4 cup. But I am a port nut. The recipe is for the bread machine. In manual adaptation, be prepared to add up to 1 1/2 cups of additional flour. I would start with the amount called for and increase flour in 1/4 cup increments, til proper dough texture is achieved during kneading... Also, you may omit the blue cheese with no ill side affects and make this a TRUE PORT BREAD. The sharper the blue cheese--the stronger the flavor of the bread. Loaf appearance will vary with the brand of cheese you use. This is a medium height loaf...dense. I found this to be a nice recipe. It stated it made great croutons...and it did! Pine nuts might also be an option to play with. **You need not use an expensive port...simply one with a good flavor. Just a thought...slice thin for toast points for cheese or pate during wine tasting....*:) Or ham sandwiches, tailgate style. Recommended to serve warm, steamed with steak bbq. For the Bread Machine: *note conversion for rapid rise cycle or regular (dry active yeast) bake cycles. >From: Katie E Green
