As a minister's wife, I do a lot of baking and cooking for church. Often, I'll find myself copying down recipes to share. This one's generally in demand. Our home's as close to the border as you can get - the river that divides our state and Kentucky joins the backyard. We have two children, 21 and 12. -Debra White, Williamson, West Virginia

"This is the GREAT quick bread recipe! I changed one thing only -- I used a Spice Cake Mix. Between the tastey topping and cinnoman it did not taste like it started with a cake mix."

"I would rate this *10* if there were stars enough. Luscious, and so easy to make. I've been retired 5 years now, and have nade this bread too many times to count. Continues to be one of our family's favorites. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful, wonderful delight. Sincerely, Jos"

"This bread has good flavor but we could definitely tell that it started from a box cake mix. It had that commercial cake mix taste to it. It also has a much lighter texture and comes off as being more of a cake than a bread."
