Shrug is catching on to the lingo as you can tell from the last line in this recipe. Just goes to show you. A great deal of recipes though not originally kosher can be made so, and once you get the hang of it, even a milk based Apple Bread as is described below can be also Parve!
Story & Description:
Another one of my experimental creations. I thought this bread tasted pretty good, but not quite as appley as I wanted. I substituted the apple cider drink mix for the other seasonings it originally called for. The result is an incredibly moist and yummy bread that is almost cake-like. Then I wondered what the bread would taste like if I used diced apples instead of raisins. Now I vary the breads by using any combination of the optional ingredients. Now matter which way you make it, it still tastes great.

Sounds Yummy! And though it seems to take a lot of ingredients they are mostly household items and does not take a special trip to the Supermarket. The baking as usual takes planning and good timing though, as all baking does. So we give this a two - cause you do need to prepare and pay a bit of attention as things go.
