"Hi Roseluongo,

bread flour would not be appropriate in this recipe. With it's higher protein, you wouldn't have the same result as using all-purpose.

"This is a very delicious bread. I have made this using craisins and I have also used chopped dates. The clove is wonderful. I have found that I can lower the amount of sugar quite a bit, it is sweet enough for me with 1&3/4 cup of sugar."

"This is delicious! Just be sure to let the bread cool completely before taking out of the pan, or it will fall apart"
