"I agree with one of the other reviewers. It was just ok, nothing special. It was missing the wow factor. It was quite easy to make but if I make again, I might try brown sugar and more raisins with a pinch of nutmeg to give it a less of a refined sugar taste."

"This bread was o.k. I omitted the raisins. I felt it was missing a wow factor. It wasn't bad just o.k. Maybe some sour cream added to the wet ingredients would help."

"Cut the ingredients in half except for the cinnamon and sugar that you add to the middle and top. Only wanted one loaf. It was great."

"I had some raisins to use and found this recipe. It smelled so good when it was baking we didn't let it cool before we cut a piece. Delicious! One loaf went in the freezer but I'm not sure it will be there long!"

"Great recipe! First time I made it it was little dry. I changed the recipe the 2nd time by using 3 eggs, 2 1/2 cups of buttermilk and 1 cup of oil. For a good cinnamon taste, I add the 1 tsp of cinnamon into the batter. It turned out fluffy and moist after it's baked. My husband loved it!!"
