Reviews for Gingerbread Oatmeal Bread
"I have made this many times since 2007 and each time it is great. Smells like fall when baking and I get lots of requests for the recipe. When I don't have orange peel on hand....I add a couple of tablespoons of orange marmalade and it still turns out perfect."
"Simply the best I have ever made in the bread machine!"
"This was a great recipe. I will be adding more ginger, and less cloves. The cloves seemed to take over the taste."
"I've made this a couple of times already this fall. The bread has a nice subtle gingerbread and molasses flavor. We like to eat it fresh out of the breadmaker with butter and honey."
