I have two bread machines, and one is often busy baking this soft chewy loaf. The bread's nutmeg, cloves and orange peel fill my home with a wonderful aroma. Slices are great for peanut butter sandwiches.
"The original recipe for this bread was printed in the cookbook that came with my bread machine," relates Florence Lowe of Zanesville, Ohio. "I liked it so much, I added some seasonings to produce a loaf similar in flavor to a focaccia bread I like."
You'll score points when you spoon the halftime meal into these hearty bowls. The bread's spongy texture makes it the perfect container for the creamy full-flavored chowder...or a thick soup, stew or chili.
