These dense muffins are a perfect accompaniment to a hearty entree. The rye flour gives the texture some and the dried cherries add to the flavor.

I love serving this special bread loaf because it has the taste of a Reuben!—Armetta Keeney, Carlisle, Iowa

When I make this bread, I almost always have to bake two loaves so that everyone gets a taste! It's especially good in the winter. In fact, last year when we went to a Christmas buffet at my husband's aunt's house—with a hearty soup as the main course—I took a Reuben Loaf along. It looks so pretty sliced and arranged on a platter, too. My husband and I are crop farmers with three young children. Cooking—especially baking—is one of the ways I relax, and I also enjoy sewing.

Enjoy the old-fashioned appeal of gingerbread in a loaf with this recipe originally from Holland. This moist spicy bread smells delicious while it's baking...and slices are wonderful spread with cream cheese. The recipe makes two big loaves, so we have one to eat and one to freeze for later...or to give away. -Martina Biemond, Rosedale, British Columbia
