I got this recipe a long time ago and with a few changes it's become one of our favorites. Everyone who's ever tasted this bread has asked for the recipe!

"I had to add a cup of water...hope it sure this was a misprint....the person who proofread this recipe before submitting, needs to find a new job!"

"The recipe overall is a good one. I did need to add 1/4 cup buttermilk to the batter since it was a little to dry and all the flour had not incorporated. I used buttermilk since it was what I use when making other similar types of bread. I added it 1 table spoon at a time just until the batter was moist. I also added 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg and ground cloves to the dry mix."

"I added milk to the recipe and one more egg. I just added enough to give it a cake like batter consistency. I have it in the oven now. Just waiting to see how it turns out."

"Is this recipe correct? I mixed it up this morning and it was too dry to bake."
