"Very good, and very easy to make! My family liked this bread a lot. I also added three teaspoons of cinnamon, as suggested by another reviewer."
"I've made this recipe twice now, and the only adjustment I've made is to add three teaspoons of ground cinnamon instead of one teaspoon. I love how quickly it comes together."
"Absolutely delicious, gave as treats to friends and had nothing but rave reviews. Delicious thanks for recipe"
"Easy and tastes excellent."
"I have made this many times because it is the best.I got it from one of my many Taste of Home books."
"I have made this amazing loaf several times, even gave them as gifts. This bread is more cake than bread...I substituted butterscotch pudding for the vanilla and it was amazing. I served it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side."
"So good! I doubled the cinnamon, but might try pumpkin pie spice next time."
"Absolutely delicious! I make 2 batches every autumn for my family and coworkers. Once in a while I'll add a half of mashed banana for a extra pop of flavor."
"I make this all the time now. Everyone that I give it to loves it as well!"
"Try this recipe. You won't be sorry. Quick, easy and delicious. Added a couple of handfuls of raisins this time. Thought they may sink to the bottom because the batter is so cakelike, but they didn't. I still prefer it plain."
