"Took this to a Prayer Breakfast this morning and brought home an empty plate. Very good. Used a little orange flavoring since I had no grated orange peel. Loved that there was only 2 tb. of butter--we don't need a lot of fat."

"This is a delicious semi-moist bread. I took two of them to my Sunday School class this morning and it was almost all gone at the end. I was glad there were a couple pieces left for my family, who promptly gobbled up the rest!"
