This moist, tender bread has all the flavors of New Orleans’ famous dessert. And the rum-flavored glaze on top’s amazing! —Christen Chalmers, Houston, Texas

Took it to a gathering and everyone wanted recipe

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 18, 2012

I substituted quick oats for the flaxseed and i did not put the glaze on top. I tried to get the bread out of the pan alittle too soon so it sort of split....but it still tasted pretty good. I will make it again (and let it cool longer!) and I am planning on trying whole wheat flour instead of white and I will put the glaze on it.

I followed the recipe but used spiced rum which we had on hand. Came out great and mother in-law wanted recipe for a card club gathering next week.
