"The texture of this moist bread is almost like a cake, so I usually serve slices of it for dessert," comments Gaye O'Dell of Binghamton, New York. "Plus, the loaf looks so festive with the pretty glaze drizzled on top."

Found recipe for this bread and just knew it would be a winner! Indeed it is. Pklan to make loaves as *food gifts* for Christmas. Thank *you* Gaye for sharing this wonderful recipe. (By the way, I live in Oxford, NY).

MY REVIEW

This bread is wonderful. I didn't have the individual spices, so I substituted them for 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. I also added just a dash of cinnamon and some chopped walnuts. I would test to see if it's done at 50 minutes next time. At 55 it was just a little more done than I would've liked, but still delicious!

Easy bread to make. Our family really loved the bread's flavor and are looking forward to it again. Agree with previous poster that it does taste better the next day.

This is a no fuss bread recipe. It has a unique taste compared to other breads and it seems to taste better the day after it is baked. YUM!

This is one of the most delicious and easy breads I have made. The texture and taste just delights the taste buds. Quick and easy to make, plus the aroma just makes your home smell wonderful. I make several loaves at a time and freeze them. My husband just can't get enough of it.
