Reviews for Mom's A-to-Z Bread
"Used strawberries, raspberries, banana,coconut and a sprinkle of chocolate chips and made them into muffins. They were moist and flavorful"
"This is always excellent and I haven't found a combo that hasn't worked for me. I find myself going to this recipe first."
"I made this when my children were little and they loved it! Lost the recipe and was extremely happy when I found it on the website! My young adults are waiting at the counter for the loaf to cool as I write. Thanks Taste of Home!"
"I used 1-1/2 c. of chopped dates instead of 2 from the A-Z group. The bread did not rise enough, and the dates sunk to the bottom resulting in a dense bread. I will make again, but will use something that will add some moisture to it instead of taking it away. It is still a very tasty bread."
"Moist and delicious"
