My family likes sweet breads, and this loaf incorporates many of their favorite ingredients. I'm a former newspaper food columnist, and coming up with flavorful recipes that are a little out-of-the-ordinary is a favorite pastime.

"Excellent! I decreased the sugar to 3/4 cup white sugar and 3/4 cup brown sugar and it was plenty sweet. I used the larger amounts of cinnamon and cloves."

"I use carrots from my garden which are sweeter than the store's so I only use 1/2 c sugar and 1/2 c brown sugar. I also make this with dark chocolate chips. It is wonderful. I make it every year at the end of the season and freeze a bunch of loaves (and muffins)."
