Thanks for your comment, just updated the recipe, should be 16 servings, the older serving size is one loaf, so it caused the calculation problem. Enjoy! So per serving should be 193 calories.

How much batter were you expecting, did the batter turn out too little?

I have made this bread for YEARS and I add about 1/2 c. of finely chopped dried apricots. It adds a little zip that is unexpected and oh so good.
