Used different ingredients.
This was a great recipe. I used mixed fruit (instead of all sultanas), which is a combination of chopped dried fruits such as apricots, apples, pears, etc., between the layers. Everyone loved it at the dinner party. Served with a dollop of cream. You could also substitute chopped Pecan nuts instead of the Walnuts, if you felt they had too strong a flavour.(Lyn Smith) - 08 Oct 2008
If I made this again I would double the Sugar water mix. It did not completely cover the bread. Otherwise very good. - 08 Oct 2008
This recipe is different from the traditional way I've always made capirotada. But since it was so much faster to prepare I wanted to try it. I can't say I loved it. My kids wouldn't touch it and I think my husband only ate it because he felt bad for me. I would recommend more traditional capirotada recipes from other sites. - 08 Oct 2008
