"Tried this recipe and it was AWESOME!!!!!! The smell of the vanilla as it was cooking was amazing. Will definitely make some more! Actually did a double batch and froze them to have in the morning when time is short! Freeze well too! Definitely worth a try!"

"This turned out great - will definitely make again. The bread puffed up nicely and browned in the oven. I used a baking sheet instead of a pan (with nonstick spray), and it worked fine. Since we love vanilla, I think I'd increase the amount used just a bit next time. It's a keeper!"
