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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 20, 2014

I baked this bread and several other things last weekend. This was the least desired. There is still about half a loaf left a week later. Everything else is gone. It's dry and somewhat flavorless. I baked it in a loaf pan but may try it one more time as mini loaves. I may add a little vanilla to the drizzle too. The powder sugar taste is overwhelming on this bread. It looked so good but....it was disappointing.

Sorry, I wanted to love this bread but it was somewhat dry and the flavors didn't pop. I am a seasoned baker, and followed the recipe to the letter. I will try it one more time, substituting applesauce for the oil.

I made this recipe yesterday. My changes....added walnuts and baked in 8 x 8. My husband loved it. Will make again.

Sorry ladies, but made this bread today and I feel it was somewhat bland and a little over-rated. Followed recipe exactly, but was not that impressed with this one...

I liked the taste but thought I was a little dry. I will try again making 2 small loafs.
