Gluten Free Fruit and nut bread

I was in mood to make some yummy nutty desert bread, I was going through the book 500 gluten free and found this recipe interesting, I gave my own to make it Vegan and some other changes .

Ingredients :
1 cup dried tropical fruits, I had one from Walgreens, I removed coconut from it.
1/4 cup chopped dates
1/4 cup chopped figs
1/4 cup golden raisins , I will try cranberry for a twist next time
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 tsp applesauce
Litchi juice (1/4 cup)

1/4 cup almond meal
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup potato starch
1 tsp xantham gum
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, I used earth balance to make it Vegan, at room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar
4 tsp GF egg substitute (mix with water per instructions on package)
1/2 cup applesauce


In a bowl add all dried fruits and 1 tsp applesauce.
Heat litchi juice , heat until heated, no need to boil.
Pour heated juice in bowl containing dry fruits and applesauce . Mix well , cover and keep for 3 hours.
Preheat over at 350 degree farenhite.
In a large bowl add almond meal, potato starch, xantham gum, baking powder, cinnamon, cornstarch and mix well.
In separate bowl, take melted butter , add sugar , mixture of egg substitute in water slowly and mix well, then add flour mixture, applesauce, dry fruit mixture . Stir until just combined. Grease 2 loaf pans. I made 1 in muffin tray and 1 in loaf pan.

Bake for about and hour, about 35-45 minutes if making in muffin tray.

Check if toothpick when inserted cones out clean.

Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out and cook completely on a wire rack.

Enjoy ! It finished fast in my house :)
